  • 2 lb yellowtail, scaled and filleted, skin left on
  • ·5 cloves garlic
  • ·2 large onions
  • ·1 cup grape vinegar
  • ·½ cup water
  • ·½ cup golden brown sugar
  • ·8 peppercorns
  • ·4 cloves

  • ·1 Tbsp masala (curry powder)
  • ·2 tsp cumin, ground

  • ·oil, as needed for frying


  1. Roughly chop the garlic

  4. Thoroughly rinse the fillet under running water. Pat it dry with a paper towel.
  5. Cut the fish into serving portions leaving the skin attached.
  6. Heat oil in a frying pan and fry the fish until cooked through (Do not cover the fish with flour or batter as normal in frying fish)
