|2 Sprigs of Fresh Thyme|
|2 Whole cloves|

- Remove any additional scales from fish. Clean fish with lime. Gently rinse with cold water, pat dry and put aside in a shallow container. Score fish diagonally 2 – 3 times on both sides if using a whole fish, once for a smaller fish and no scoring for fillets. In a blender or food processor, add all spices with the exception of the shallots and sweet pepper. Add lemon juice. Blend until it forms a paste. Pour marinade over fish, rub paste all over by making sure that fish is well coated. Cover and place in the refrigerator for up to 3 hours or overnight.
- Remove fish from refrigerator and let at room temperature. Heat oil on low setting in a large heavy pan big enough to hold whole fish. Cut fish in half if necessary.
- Remove fish from marinate and slowly add to pan. Increase heat slightly and let cook 5 – 7 minutes per sides depending on thickness. Transfer fish to a plate.
- In same pan, add additional oil if necessary, add marinade and let cook down for about 7 to 10 minutes on low heat. Add onion, shallots and sweet pepper. Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of hot water depending on the amount of sauce you want. Season with salt and pepper and a few drops of lime of lemon juice. Bring to a boil. Once sauce starts to thickens, return fish to pan and let cook for an additional 5 minutes. Serve fish immediately with a side or of root vegetables or rice or both.
