  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil


  1. Take out the scales and gills of your fish, clean the belly from all the guts, clean and wash thoroughly. Give it a semi deep diagonal cuts at the both sides of your fish. For esthetic reasons and to allow the marinade to penetrate deep into the fish right to the bone.

  3. Now pour your mixture into a small bowl and garnish with some vegetable oil stir generously and then set aside for the marinade.
