Broiled Fish

A recipe of the villages along the Chari River.


* 6 medium-sized fish
* 2 cloves of garlic
* 2 tablespoons of flour
* 5 tablespoons of oil
* 3 tomatoes
* salt, pepper, or chilli powder


1. Cut the fish into pieces, after having washed and wiped it dry.

2. Spread small pieces of garlic as deep as possible into the flesh of fish.

3. Dip the pieces of fish in the flour.

4. Heat the oil in a cast iron pan and place the fish in it once the oil is very hot.

5. When the pieces are golden brown, add the tomatoes, sliced along the middle, add salt, and the other spices, and cover the pan.

6. Let it simmer at low temperature for about 40 minutes. Check to see when it is ready, and add a few spoonfuls of water if necessary. Serve very hot, fresh off the fire.
