Remove the fish head, scales, and viscera and slice the meat into thin pieces, discarding the fatty parts. Mix the meat with fine salt in the ration of 5:1 by weight and leave overnight. The next morning, add chopped pineapple in the ratio of 1:1 by weight and mix well. Pack tightly in a jar until there are no air bubbles left and leave in a dark place. When the fermentation is mature, the liquid is quite clear and the colour of the fish flesh becomes pink. This takes about 3 months.
