Clean and dry the kingfish, and season. Set a pan to heat, with some oil and fry the fish until browned and cooked through. Be careful not to make it dry or too crispy.
Chop the onion, and spring onions, fry them lightly adding the spices including the anise, and tomato paste. Fry until softened, and the tomato paste becomes darker red in colour.
