Tikin xic style fish

Tikin xic style fish

From Chef Ricardo Muñoz Zurita cuisine

“This recipe is inspired by the legendary Yucatecan Tikin xic style prepared  fish. The original recipe uses a whole fish rubbed with achiote seasoning and grilled over the coals of coconut husks. If you use this method, take care that the fish does not burn as the husks create an intense heat.  Since many of us do not have a garden with a grill, your other option is to use fish fillets, which you can cook in a skillet. This way you also avoid deboning the fish.

This is an absolutely delicious dish, served in many Mexican restaurants as well”
