Sri Lankan coconut fish

This recipe surprised me, when I started looking at Sri Lankan recipes I was overwhelmed by how different and delicious they were, but this one contained leeks?? Hmm, not an ingredient I would necessarily associate with Sri Lanka, however, being low in calories and containing potassium, folate, iron and fibre, does it matter? Mix this up with some juicy white fish, high in protein, vitamin A, D and B12 and coconut oil containing easy to metabolise fatty acids, this recipe gives you all the goodness you need.
