5 oz of king fish (bones included) (you can use the head of a grouper or mahi mahi)
1 english potato
1/2 scotch or goat pepper (remove the seeds for less heat)
2 cups of water
dash of salt
1/2 small onion

2. peel and cube potato (into 6 pieces - not too small)
3. add fish, potato, remaining onion and water in a pot bring to boil and simmer until potatoes are cooked (15 mins)
