Sydney-based Moroccan chef Hassan M’Souli, from Out of Africa restaurant, tells us there are so many ways to bake a fish. Hassan's own recipe here looks and tastes exotic, combining Moroccan spices with continental flavours.
Ingredients2 garlic cloves, crushed
2.5cm piece ginger root, grated
1 tsp cumin
1tsp hot paprika
½ tsp coriander (cilantro) seeds
1 cup flat-leaf parsley
1 cup fresh coriander
¼ cup (60ml) olive oil
Pinch of saffron threads
Zest of 1 lemon
Pinch of ground cinnamon
½ cup (125ml) orange juice
1kg (2lb) fish, (either blue eye, whiting or snapper), cut into 4 steaks
Pinch of salt
½ preserved lemon, sliced, for garnish and marinade
PreparationPreheat the oven to 220°C (450°F) or gas mark 6.
Combine the garlic, ginger, cumin, hot paprika, coriander seeds, parsley and coriander leaves in a mortar and pestle. Grind and stir until you have made a paste.
Heat the olive oil in a saucepan. Fry the paste for 1 minute and then add the saffron, lemon zest, cinnamon and orange juice to make a smooth sauce.
Rub the fish with the salt and half of the preserved lemon slices. Place in a greased shallow baking dish. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, or until cooked through.
Place the fish on a warm plate and spoon over the sauce. Garnish with the remaining preserved lemon and serve immediately.
