  1. In a large plastic Ziploc bag, combine 2 tsp of cilantro, 2 tsp of parsley, 1/4 tsp salt, the garlic and lime juice. Add fish fillets, turn to coat and let sit to marinate for about 20-30 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, red pepper and jalapeno and saute until the veggies are soft (about 7 minutes).
  3. Add 1 cup of the chopped tomato and cook another 3 mintues.
  4. Stir in coconut milk and remaining 1/4 tsp salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add fish fillets (with the marinade) to the skillet in a single layer. Spoon some of the sauce over the fish. Return mixture to a simmer and cook - covered - for about 10 minutes or until the fish is cooked through. Stir occasionally.
  6. Transfer fish and sauce to a platter and top with remaining 1/4 cup tomatoes, 2 tsp cilantro, 2 tsp parsley. Surround with lime wedges. Serve immediately with cooked rice.
