1. Cut: Score fish 3 or 4 times diagonally on both sides.

2. Season: Sprinkle each fish with a pinch of oregano, garlic, pepper, and salt.

3. Rub each fish with the cornstarch, making sure it gets into the cuts.

4. Fry: In a frying pot heat the oil over medium-high heat (350 ºF [176 ºC]). Deep-fry one by one until golden brown on both sides.

5. Place on a paper towel to drain excess oil.

6. Serve: Garnish with lime wedges, and serve with tostones (twice-fried plantains) salt and Guinness Draught on the side.
