Kingfish In Sauce-Kingfish En Salsa,

Kingfish is a type of fish that belongs to the mackerel family. It is a firm and meaty fish with a small amount of bones. This is a simple recipe with subtle spices to compliment the fish.










1 Packet of Kingfish,washed in lime juice and water
1 teaspoon each of: Smoked Paprika, Salt(Maybe less),Black Pepper, Garlic Powder, Chilli(Or to taste).

For the sauce:
Half an Onion and 2 Spring Onions, chopped
Garlic powder and Smoked Paprika to taste
Deseeded Scotch Bonnet Chilli sliced
3 Pieces of Star Anise
Oil for lightly frying


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.

Add water, and some seasoning to taste. Add the fish and leave to simmer for 10 minutes-Don’t worry the fish is a firm fish and will still be succulent during this time. Reduce the sauce, and serve with steamed rice or pasta. Disfrutalo!

    1. Hello Sean, thanks for your comments. I hadn’t heard of Kingfish before either.. It is a type of mackerel, but with a milder taste. The anise goes really well with it, try fennel seeds if desired. Thank you for visiting, and have a look for Pepita Seasoning, and foods in the Caribbean Food category!
