Add capsicum, garlic and chilli, then cook, stirring occasionally,until capsicum is softened.
Stir in stock/water, tomatoes, coconut milk. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook for 20 minutes until slightly reduced.
Add prawns, fish and marinating juices, then cook for a further 8-10 minutes until the seafood is just cooked. Add a little more lime juice on top and sprinkle with coriander leaves before servings. Tastes great with rice.
