Today is friday, the fishday, therefore we're gonna cook a special fish today:

How to make Piranha

Piranha

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes

Steps

  • Piranha ( each 400 grams )
  • 2 or 3 cloves of garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • sprig of fresh parsley
  • a lemon or lime
  • 1 or 2 whole ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • 100 grams of corn meal
  • dash of Cachaça

Clean and scale the Piranha competely. Cut it diagonally along both sides from the top to belly. Crush the garlic cloves and mix with the salt and a little pepper. Rub the mixture into the cuts along the sides of the fish. Wrap it with a damp banana leaf, drop some Cachaça over the Piranha and marinate it for at least one hour. Heat oil ( to a high temperature ) in a large pan. Sprinkle the marinated fish lightly with corn meal. Fry golden brown on each side, turn the fish carefully after browning each side. Serve now with a garnish of the sliced tomatoes and fresh lemon squeezed over the fish. Enjoy with a tasty branded or original Mojito.
