    1. Cut fish fillets into 1 inch thick slices. Combine the 1/4 cup salt with 4 cups of water, stir to combine and brine the fish in this mixture for 30-45 minutes. Then remove fish from brine, drain on a paper towel and pat dry.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a large pan and add the mashed garlic cloves and 2 bay leaves. Cook in the oil over medium heat until the garlic browns, but don't let the garlic burn or it will turn bitter. Remove the bay leaves and discard.
    3. Turn the heat up to medium-high and cook the fish to a good sear You want a good sear on each side of the fish for 1-3 minutes, depending on the thickness. You don't need to cook the fish all the way through.
