- the juice of 2 limes
- seasoned flour for dredging
- 2 cups of olive oil
- 1 cup of vinegar
- 4 bay leaves
- 12 peppercorns
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 3 to 4 tablespoons of crushed garlic. (note: this is optional and can be added to the onion mixture during the cooking cycle or after this is up to you)

- Add onions and allow to simmer slowly for about one hour.
- While the onions are simmering rinse fish under cold water and place on a cutting board.
- Pat the pieces of fish dry with a paper towel and then rub all sides with the lime juice.
- Dredge fish in the seasoned flour make sure that it is completely covered with the flour coating and set aside.

- Place about one quarter cup of oil in a heavy skillet and bring up to heat.
- Once the oil comes up to heat place a few pieces of fish in it and fry until golden brown on all sides.

- Place a layer of the onion and oil mixture in to a large container that has a tight lid, preferably glass.
- Place a layer of the fried fish into the container, now add another layer of the onion and oil mixture.
- Continue this process until you have added all of the fish.
