2. Cut the fish into small bite sized pieces and stir, allowing the fish to absorb the chili essence

4. It is important to only squeeze out the juice of the lime without squeezing and adding juice from white part of the rind, which will add a bitter flavour
5. Season lightly with salt and pepper
6. Add the Rocoto paste, coriander, parsley and fish broth mix gently, finally squeezing the rest of the lime and balancing the seasoning with broth, lime, salt and pepper
