Recipe by Dienia B.

This recipe is made with kingfish in Oman I think. You could use salmon or tuna; it looks to be that kind of fish. That is what I am putting in the recipe. These directions were kinda light so if any one knows about this recipe to flesh it out it would be good. It is served with rice. It is yellow and has lemon flavoring. One recipe had tomatoes and the other recipe didn't so I am putting that as an option. Please excuse any mistakes I made.

  1. In oil saute onions 5 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and tomatoes if you want tomatoes; saute 5 more minutes adding 1/2 cup of water.
  3. Add whole chili peppers.
  4. Add remaining water, turmeric, salt, and fish.
  5. Simmer 20 minutes.
  6. When off heat, add juice of 4 lemons. Don't add lemon juice when cooking or it will make it bitter. One recipe said 6 lemons.
  7. Serve over rice.
