Method

 
Try a delicacy originating from the southern parts of the Philippines.
Rinse the fish with water once and then quickly with vinegar.
Place in bowl and sprinkle the ginger and the onions over the fish.
Squeeze out the juice of 2 lemons on the mixture.
Add the vinegar, the cayenne pepper and salt to taste.
Mix everything slowly so you don’t crush the fish.
 Decorate with slices of lemon on top.

PS: If you use strong vinegar it will cook the fish almost right away. The idea is not to cook the fish entirely. It should still be pinkish inside so as to keep it soft and tasty. In some parts of the Philippines they add 1/2 cup of coconut milk to remove the fishy taste of the fish. In other parts they add slices of cucumber to the dish. Some add slices of fresh tomatoes too.
