Fillet the fish and cut it into pieces. Wash under running water as lightly salt. Lightly salt the flour as well that will be used to coat the fish. Flour the scabbardfish and fry in a pan with hot olive oil, then place the fish on paper towel to remove excess oil. 

Peel and slice the onions. Make the onions sweat in a pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, add the double concentrated tomato paste and mix; add very little water and mix until onion is cooked.
