  • 3 tbsps balsamic vinegar

  • Smash the green chillies, pepper and garlic together in a mortar and pestle. Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
  • Rub this marinade on the fish and keep aside for sometime, I kept it for about an hour.
  • Heat a heavy bottom pan and drizzle with olive oil and proceed to cook as mentioned about. Cook each side of the fillet for about a minute and put the same pan in a preheated oven at 180C for about 5-7 minutes.
