What’s Needed for the Cured Chilean Fish Recipe

One of the great things about this recipe is that it’s quite simple to make and only requires a few ingredients that are easy to find in most stores. The marinating time requires a bit of patience, but the rewards are well worth it. This recipe calls for:

  • 8-9 ounces of fish of any meaty variety
  • Minced garlic
  • 0,7 ounces of oyster sauce
  • 0.3 ounces of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 0.4 ounces of minced ginger
  • 0.7 ounces of chili powder
  • 5-6 ounces of chopped potatoes
  • Oil for frying
  • Butter for brushing

Marinate the Fish

Wash and clean the chosen variety of fish and, if needed, slice into manageable portions. It’s necessary to pat it dry with kitchen paper towels before marinating it. In a bowl, mix the honey, oyster sauce, soy sauce, ginger, chili powder, and garlic. After stirring it into a uniform paste, spread the marinade generously over the prepared fish. Let it rest and marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

Time to Cook

Take the marinated fish out of the fridge about an hour ahead of time to let it get back to room temperature before frying. Fry the potatoes in hot oil in the meantime. Remove the potatoes from the pan and toss them in salt, butter, and chili powder while they’re hot. Apply some butter on the fish and grill it or fry it in a buttered skillet. Make sure that it’s cooked through and serve it hot!
