Recipe: Marinated Fluke with Coconut and Caribbean Spices

Summertime is seafood time, so we were thrilled when Chef Mike Carrino of Pig & Prince Restaurant in Montclair shared his recipe for marinated fluke with coconut and Caribbean spices.

Serves 2


  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced red onion
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced jicama
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresno chilies (peppers)
  • ½ teaspoon ground Jamaican allspice
  • ½ teaspoon fine ground sea salt
  • 8 oz fresh fluke, sliced thin, in long strips


  1. In a large plastic or glass bowl or container combine all ingredients and mix well.
  2. Marinate fluke for up to three hours in refrigerator.
  3. Remove from marinade and lay flat on a long rectangle plate or small platter, garnish with some residual marinade, chilies, onions and jicama.
