STEP-BY-STEP COOKING RECIPE
Pour half of the salt onto the tray. Put the cod fillet on it, cover it with the remaining salt and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Peel and chop the shallots, garlic and hot pepper. Warm coriander and zira grains in a dry frying pan until flavor appears. Add turmeric and peanuts and simmer for a couple more minutes.
Transfer onions, garlic, peppers, peanuts and spices into a blender bowl and chop. Add coconut milk, sugar and fish sauce, process in a blender again until a smooth paste forms. Add some water if necessary.
Remove the fish from the salt and rinse under running water. Dry with napkins, put on a dish and carefully cover with a paste of spices. Leave for 1 hour at room temperature.
Light the coals, set the grate over the flame and heat it properly. Lubricate the wire rack with vegetable oil.
Take the fish out of the marinade, shake off the excess. Put on the wire rack and fry for 3-5 minutes on each side.
