Stage 4 - 1 hour

Stage 5

After marinading, you will see that the fish has turned slightly opaque. This is the effect of the lemon juice.

Stage 6 - 3 min.

Put a frying pan on high heat, then add the fish fillets with the skin downwards. Cook for about 3 minutes until the skin is nicely browned.

Stage 9 - 3 min.

Serve 2 fillets per person with white rice, for example.
Remarks
Be careful not to cook the fish too long with the skin downwards. It needs to be fried, but make sure it is not burnt, as this tends to happen rather quickly.
Keeping
Should be eaten immediately once plated up.
