In a small container mix cumin, turmeric, chili powder, black pepper and ½ tsp salt, then sprinkle on both sides of the fish. Place a heavy bottom stew pot over high heat. Add oil, when oil is hot add fish and brown both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Remove fish and place in a plate.

Add butter, onions, tomatoes, tomato paste, garlic and ginger and cook until the vegetables soften, about 5 minutes. Next water, thyme, pepper, remaining salt and vinegar then bring to a boil and allow to simmer for a few minutes. Carefully add fish back to the pot and cover. Lower heat to medium low and allow to cook for about 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and garnish with a splash of lime juice and freshly chopped cilantro. Serve with rice.
