Mojito De Pescado - Fish Mojito (Venezuela)

The basic ingredients used in the preparation are fish (Cod, Shark or Croaker), aliños and coconut milk. In this recipe I use the fish that I had in my refrigerator ( Swordfish) and I did not use coconut mil(I didn't have any in my kitchen). If you want add coconut milk, I recommend it, the flavor the dish is very delicious.This recipe is an emblematic dish of the cuisine of the western of my Country - Venezuela.
