Slaves from Dutch territories in the east indies brought their culinary traditions with them to southern Africa. Although pickled fish no longer play as important a nutritional role as they did in the days before refrigeration, they are still popular. Snoek and hake are commonly used, but any firm, fleshy fish will pickle well. Because these are eaten cold, they make excellent hot weather fare. This recipe serves as 4 as first course or when accompanied by filling side dishes such as potato salad. You must make it 2 days before you plan to eat it.
Ingredients
  • 1 lb. fish
  • flour or dredging
  • 4 medium onions, sliced
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 2 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 tsp. peppercorns
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
Directions

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Wash and pat dry the fish pieces and dip them in flour to coat. In a baking dish, make a bed of the onion slices and lay fish on top. Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over the fish and onions. Cover with a tight-fitting lid or seal with foil and bake for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let cool, then refrigirate for 2 days before serving.
