Fish & Citrus Salad

I often toss up  fish / prawns in minced garlic with chilies and add Dhania Leaves / Parsley / curry putta / Basil / Kafiri leaves depending upon availability in the fridge . A quick and easy dish which is then finished with a squeeze of lemon juice . Was making the same yesterday when I realized that I had grapefruit in my fridge shriveling away - so this dish was born.
No fixed ingredients , tweak to taste . I used:
200 Grams Sole Fillets - Cut 2" Pieces.
2 Tablespoons Minced Garlic.
1 Tablespoon Chopped Green & Red Chilies.
2 Tablespoons Minced Kafiri Lime Leaves ( heavenly flavors ).
2 Cups Cleaned Grapefruit Flesh ( to be used later )
Mix all the ingredients including the fish but NOT the grapefruit flesh and leave covered in cling wrap for 20-30 minutes.
In a wok warm 1 teaspoon sesame oil ( lovely smoked flavors ) add the marinated fish. Stir fry over high heat 1 minute to seal , then add 3-4 tablespoons cleaned grapefruit flesh, cover and cook 3-4 minutes on medium heat till fish is done. Take off the fire and while the dish is warm add 1-2 cups grapefruit flesh, gently mix and serve at room temperature .
If you have no grapefruit use any citrus like oranges etc , or simple add lemon juice at the end if you have no fruit.This is a delicious tangy and spicy salad with flavors of the Orient .
