4 or 5 fish steaks
1 tbsp. seasoning mixture (see below for recipe)
Salt (to taste)
3-4 tbsp. butter or margarine
1 small onion (sliced)
2 medium ripe tomatoes (sliced)
Vinegar or lime juice

Marinate fish and rub with seasoned mixture. Sprinkle with a little salt. Melt butter or margarine in pan and fry sliced onions lightly. Remove onions from the pan, put in fish and cover tightly so that the fish cooks with steam. When one side is done (about 4 minutes), turn over carefully. Arrange sliced tomatoes and cooked onions on top. Cover and steam again (about 4 minutes). Just before serving, pour a little lime juice or vinegar over each piece of fish.

Seasoning Mixture:
1 medium onion (minced/chopped)
2-3 blades chives or shallot (minced/chopped)
Piece of red pepper (chopped)
¼ tsp. powered cloves
½ tsp. salt
Sprig of thyme or marjoram
1 garlic clove (chopped)
1 tsp. lime juice

Mince or chop onion, garlic and chives or shallot very finely. Mix in the other ingredients and chop well together. To season the fish, score the flesh deeply in places and put a little mixture in each incision.

Note: Fish fillet pieces, flying fish and pork (for roasting) can be made very tasty prepared with this seasoning mixture.
