Ngege (Tilapia) with Groundnut Sauce

Ngege (Oreochromis esculentus, a kind of Tilapia) is commonly consumed throughout Africa's great lakes region. Lake Victoria was a famous source of Ngege until the Nile Perch was introduced and drove the Ngege to near-extinction (many Lake Victoria cichlids suffered the same fate). This is another of Africa's many Peanut Sauce recipes, similar to Central Africa's Fried Fish in Peanut Sauce.
