I am using the white Grunt fish. However, you can use any type of fish, whether Trout, Salmon, King fish, even fish fillets. I purchased fish at the seaside and paid extra to get them scraped and gutted.Even so, before cooking them I always do the final cleaning and also wash them in vinegar and water solution (2 tbsp. vinegar mixed with 4 cups of water) or lime and water solution (juice of 1 lime mixed with 4 cups of water), put to drain for about 2 minutes. Cut both sides of each fish (not very deep)
