1 teaspoon


1/2 teaspoon


Cleaned whole fish

Medium onion, sliced lengthways

Garlic, sliced lengthways

Finely shredded fresh ginger

  • Put the chili on top and add vinegar to just cover the fish.

  • Cover the casserole with lid and seal with a thick dough of flour and water to prevent moisture escaping.
