This was another one of my experimenting moments in the kitchen. I needed to do something different with my fish other than baking, coating in seasoned flour then frying or stewing. So I decided to play around with some ingredients and hoped for the best! It worked out well. The fish was moist and tender, bursting on the seems with flavour!! My family thoroughly enjoyed it. As I’ve heard some people saying, it was “Mudya ndakasungwa” 😀

Avoid turning the fish a lot when it’s cooking as fish fillets are fragile and could break up on you. Serve with a lemon wedge together with your preferred vegetable and starch from sadza to rice, pasta or potatoes.
