2 lbs. white fish, bones removed
3 large yellow onions, sliced
2 tblsp. oil
2 chili peppers or 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
3 cloves garlic
4 medium-size tomatoes, or 6 oz. tomato paste
½ cup white vinegar
½ tsp. ground cardamom
½ tsp. cumin
½ tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lay the fish in a baking pan. Heat oil to a moderate temperature, and fry the onion slices until transparent. Arrange over the fish.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. (Or crush chillies and garlic with a mortar and pestle and mash tomatoes well with a fork before combining with other ingredients.) Pour over fish, cover the pan, and simmer about 30 minutes until fish is just cooked.
