Scurry to crazy water

This recipe is a very old recipe, one of the poorest you can find. It is said to have been born in the ships' cabins where sailors used the very few ingredients available to cook the fish caught. It is called crazy water because the fish was cooked with sea water to not use salt which was a very expensive ingredient.
