Hi tommo,
nice to hear that you likes kibbeling too. Actually I'm not so sure about it, that's why I'd been using ready- mix fish marinade from supermarket. You may just marinade it just with some salt and pepper. After frying, sprinkle some 'marinade-mix' such as cajun, fish or any you likes on top and enjoy!!!!! Groetjes from Rotterdam.

I am living in mauritius and saterday we are going to the beach and going to swim in the blue ocean enjoying the goodlife.
But we have two questions for our brother here:

-which fish can we use here?
- what kind of fish marinade we have to use?

And if you give us the right answer, you can come to mauritius and we give you a free tour.
