  1. Ensure the fish cavity is cleaned.
  2. Run a sharp knife into the fish making pockets on either side of the backbone of the fish.
  3. You can even make 3-4 lateral grooves on either side of the fish - do not run the knife right into the bone, just about 3/4 way in.
  4. Apply salt & lime juice to the fish & set aside for 15-20 mins.
  5. Grind all the other ingredients to a paste except the oil.
  6. Wash the fish & smear the ground paste all over the fish - inside the pockets, inside the fish cavity & all over the outside too.
  7. You can let it sit and marinade for a while.
  8. Shallow fry, grill or barbeque for 6 mins on each side.
  9. Serve with lemon wedges, onion rings and potato-chips/ fries.
