This is how Indonesian marinate their fish, in fact it is so good that they also use it to marinate poultry, meat, as well as tofu and tempe. Normally, the marinating process is quick, in some cases you don't even let it sit at all, just rub it all over the fish, or other ingredients, then grill or fry immediately. I personally like to let it sit in the refrigerator at least for 15 minutes before proceeding to the next step. But the best flavor is when you marinate it for overnight.
