I washed the fish, drained it, then dusted it with salt and left it to rest for 10 minutes.
In the meantime, I also put polenta. I don't think it's necessary to put the recipe on polenta, I made 300 g of corn.
For the brine I put water with a little vegeta and the bay leaves to boil until the first boil, then removed from the heat, I put the chopped parsley and dill and covered. I cleaned the garlic, washed it and crushed it well with salt, then rubbed it with olive oil. I put the ground pepper and the paprika (usually I put chopped hot peppers, but I didn't have one and that's why I resorted to the paprika), then I added the slightly warm stew.
The hot fish is put in the brine, but I let it separate to put as much brine as you want.
