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 7 - 1 min.

Stage 8 - 5 min.

You can also make a very easy sauce by pouring the remaining marinade into the frying pan and leaving it to reduce slightly.

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.
