Time for Flavor! This Moroccan Fish Dish is a Hit.

It’s a weekly dinner staple at my house. If you like flavor and a bit of heat, it might become one of yours too.

 

My husband loves Moroccan food and this dish is his favorite. He actually prepared this dish on a Tisha B’Av (this is what was tempting him…go figure) and it was a huge hit! Since then, I prepare it quite often…it’s extremely flavorful and although it doesn’t call for the the typical household ingredients, it’s worth the grocery trip if you enjoy a really flavorful dish.

To release the hot flavors cut the chili peppers in half lengthwise or trim the stems off. If you’d prefer it less spicy, keep them  whole.

  2. Add garlic, lower heat, and continue cooking for a few minutes longer.

Raskin’s Turbot tastes like Sea Bass, but has the calories of Tilapia. – Shani Taub

    1. @Sara – Thanks for pointing that out. The recipe was revised because we tried to cut down on the oil. I just updated it! Let us know how it works out!
