Fish with Sorrel

Mboto à l'oseille (in French) or Mboto with sorrel, is a common dish in Central Africa. Mboto is the Lingala name for a freshwater fish (evidently a species of Citharinidae Distichodinae) commonly eaten in the Congo region. It is often smoked for preservation. Sorrel, or Ngai-ngai in the Lingala language, is often cooked as a kind of greens. Outside of Africa, use any freshwater in this recipe.
