Clean fish pieces, make deep slashes in it.
Mix all the ingredients for marination and add very little water and make it into a thick paste.
Apply masala all over the fish, deep into the slits and slashes.
Leave this to marinate for 30 mins.
Heat coconut oil in a pan, place fish over it. Cover it and cook on a medium low heat for 5 to 6 mins. Now flip over and cook on high heat for 5 more mins. Now the fish is done.
