Ingredients

How to make it

  • SPRINKLE PORTIONED FISH WITH THE SALT AND LET IT STAND FOR 15 MINUTES.
  • RINSE THE FISH WELL AND PAT DRY WITH KITCHEN TOWEL.
  • SEASON THE FISH WITH THE SALT AND PEPPER AND FRY IN THE OIL UNTIL COOKED (ALTERNATIVELY YOU CAN BAKE THE FISH AT 180C FOR 15 MINUTES OR LONGER UNTIL COOKED - I PREFER BAKED).
  • DRAIN ON KITCHEN TOWEL AND SET ASIDE.
  • SWEAT THE ONIONS UNTIL SOFT AND ADD THE GARLIC AND GINGER.
  • FRY GENTLY FOR ANOTHER 2 MINUTES.
  • PLACE LAYERS OF FISH AND THE ONION MIXTURE IN LARGE JARS OR AIRTIGHT CONTAINERS.
  • HEAT THE DRY SPICES FOR ABOUT 2 MINUTES IN A LARGE DRY PAN UNTIL FRAGRANT.
  • ADD THE BAY LEAVES, VINEGAR, ORANGE JUICE, WATER, APRICOT JAM, SUGAR AND SULTANA RAISINS.
  • BOIL THE SAUCE FOR 10 MINUTES AND LET IT COOL DOWN SLIGHTLY.
  • POUR THE SAUCE OF THE FISH MIXTURE AND REFRIGERATE FOR 3 DAYS TO DEVELOP THE FLAVOURS BEFORE SERVING.
  • ENJOY

    We eat it on it's own or with rice, lentils keep it plain as the fish is spicy and full of flavour

    Darn! This is where I always get caught out.
    You have this fish, now you want to serve it. What suggestions would you serve to accompany the fish?

    Very, very different. Any idea how long this will keep in the fridge? The Maleys must have had a pretty well developed culinary tradition. Thanks for a great post. RJ
