Prep: 10 min
Cook: 25 min

600g cod or hake fillets
5ml salt
5ml turmeric
5ml chili powder
90ml olive oil
Coriander sprigs to garnish

Cut the fish into 2cm slices and spread it out in a shallow dish large enough to hold all the slices in a single layer. Mix the salt and spices in a bowl. Stir in enough water to make a thick paste. Rub the paste into the fish, cover, and leave to marinate for 1 hour. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add as much of the spiced fish as possible, but do not overfill the pan. Fry the fish for 5 – 10 minutes, until golden-brown all over, then remove from the pan with a slotted spoon. Drain on an absorbent paper towel and keep hot while cooking the rest of the fish. Garnish and serve hot, with rice or a small salad, if preferred.
