½ tsp garlic (dried and ground)

2 cloves of ginger (minced)

1. Clean fish and wash well. If you are using a fish that has scales, properly remove the scales, rinse well and set aside.

2. Mix all the ingredients except the fish in bowl

3. Place the fish on a large quantity of foil paper. Make some slices on the body of the fish for the marinade to penetrate the fish both inside and outside

4. Using a brush or your well washed hands, spread the marinade on the fish generously both in and out. Cover the fish with the foil paper and place in the fridge for about 20 minutes

5. Heat the grill on medium heat while the fish marinates in the fridge.

6. Place the fish on the grill and cook for 5 minutes each for both sides

7. In a large skillet, heat very little vegetable oil. Once hot, add the onions, seasoning cubes (optional), salt (optional) and pepper and leave to fry for 4 minutes.

8. Add the grilled fish to the pepper sauce. If you want the fish full, be careful when turning. Let the pepper penetrate every part of the fish. Set aside when that is done.


Preheat the grill.
