1. Remove coconut cream from the refrigerator, stir to soften. Allow to sit out at room temperature while cooking the cake and fish. Heat a½ a tablespoon of the oil in a small sauté pan. Shape the rice into a cake form, once oil is hot sear the cake on both sides for about 30 seconds. Be gentle during this process as to not break the cake apart. Place into a preheated oven at 400 degrees. Reheat the same pan and add the oil. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Heat the oil until you saw wisps of smoke coming off the oil. Add the fish and cook for about 30 seconds. Carefully flip the fish, it should have a nice golden brown color. Continue cooking for another 30 seconds. Remove from the pan. To plate place the cold cream on a square plate to one side. Place the rice cake in the middle and place the fish on top of the cake. Serve immediately.
