"This recipe can be made with dory, pomfret, mullet, or other types. Ideally it would be pan-fried or barbecued in banana leaves. But for lack of availability, I wrapped the fish in foil and baked it in the oven. The paste is best prepared with mortar and pestle and rubbed into the fish. For best results, marinade in the fridge over night."
