The fish saleswoman was dealing with order after order coming in

I arrived at the Kanoman market, where they were selling tropical fruits and fish. The main industry of Cirebon is fishing, as the city faces the sea. When I arrived in front of the fishmonger, I saw fishes displayed in basins lined up in the store. But they were not freshly landed fish. All the fish seemed to have been salted as well as dried. Salted seafood is a specialty of this city.

The fish shop was crowded with customers. A woman dressed in red with a gray hijab covering her hair seemed to be busy taking orders. Unlike supermarkets, the fish for sale here were not packaged. The woman selects the fish from the basin, wraps them in the paper, and hands them to the customer. Then, the customer pays in cash. It's a traditional way of selling.

When I looked closely at the fish for sale, I saw that they were not only salted but also marinated with other seasonings. But I couldn't tell what they were pickled with. I wondered what they were pickled with.
