Cut your fillet into big pieces, season it with salt and white pepper. Let it sit for a few mins.

In a pan, heat the oil add the diced onions and saute for a few minutes.

Add the ginger and garlic and let it cook for a minute or so. Make sure the onions don’t get burned.

Blend your tomatoes and you can also add some water.

Add the blended tomatoes to the pan, leave them to simmer for a few minutes then add the fish fillet.
