READY IN: 9mins




  • If using whole fish:
  • Cut several slits in the side of the fish to allow it to better marinate.
  • In a glass bowl or baking pan mix all ingredients (except the fish) to make a marinade.
  • Place the fish in the marinade, covering both sides, and allow it to marinate an hour.
  • Remove fish from the marinade, but save the marinade.
  • Cook according to one of the following methods.
  • Cooking method 1: Cook fish over an outdoor grill (or broil fish in a hot oven) until done. If grilling: a hinged wire basket made for holding fish on the grill is very useful.
  • Cooking method 2: In a frypan, fry the fish on each side in hot oil until done.
  • While fish is cooking: Pour the marinade into a saucepan and bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the marinade thickens into a sauce.
  • Place the fish over cooked rice on a serving dish and cover with sauce.
