2. Rub salt on the entire body of the fish, including its insides.
3. The stove should be set at medium.
4. Make sure that the pan in really hot before pouring the oil.
5. Turn the heat to low before turning over the fish to the other side so it won't stick.
6. It's time to turn the fish when you can barely hear the oil fighting against the fish' flesh.

In Thailand, cooking fried fish is served with lots of fried garlic on top, similar to this one below. This kind of dish requires a big wok having such a big fish. Still, the basic of cooking fried fish applies.
