dish of the year

Cerviche at Arintji.

No picture - so you will get 1,000 words instead :)

Imagine a small, white ovoid bowl. At the bottom is a rectangle of green banana leaf.

In the bowl sits slices of kingfish. Narrower strips than sashimi.

This delicately flavoured fish has been marinated in coconut milk, slices of unexpectedly firey red chilli and fine slivers of lime leaves. I'm guessing there's lime juice in there too.

The mouthful is sweet, creamy, tangy and if you chance upon the chilli - explosive.

So good - we finished the meal with a second serve!
