  1. Combine the water and 1 tablespoon salt in a shallow container. Soak the fish in the salt water for 10 minutes.
  2. Mix the turmeric, coriander, paprika, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Remove fish from the salt water and pat dry with paper towels. Coat fish on both sides with spice mixture.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook fish in hot oil until it flakes easily with a fork, about 3 minutes per side. Serve garnished with cilantro.


  • Cook's Note
  • I always use Kosher salt in this recipe. If using regular iodized salt, start with 1½ teaspoons in the brine. If needed, add more salt to taste after cooking.
