Method

 
1. Fillet the fish.
2. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
3. Mix the sugar, curry powder, turmeric, salt, cayenne pepper, vinegar and water in a large flat-bottomed saucepan (do not use an iron or aluminium saucepan).
4. Add the onion rings and lemon leaves and allow to cook for 20 – 30 minutes.
5. Carefully place the fish fillets in the mixture, ensuring that they are well covered, and cook for a further 20 minutes or until done. Baste with the curry sauce from time to time and turn the fillets if necessary.
6. Pack the fish in layers in jars or an enamel dish, covering each layer completely with the hot curry sauce. Pour over the remaining sauce and allow to cool. Seal and store in a cool place. The fish is ready to eat after 2 or 3  days.

TIP
• If preferred, add any of the following spices and seasonings to taste: whole coriander seeds, black peppercorns, whole allspice, whole cloves, chillies or fresh ginger.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
