Fish tagine is the most common way of enjoying fish in Morocco. Our fish tagine recipe combines the finest aromatic herbs and spices to create a sauce bursting with flavor. We use ‘chermoula’ as the base for our simmer sauce. Chermoula is an all-purpose Moroccan marinade made with extra virgin olive oil, cilantro, parsley, lemon, garlic, paprika, ginger, cumin, turmeric, coriander, cayenne and pepper. Tomato is added to give the sauce its thick richness.
Traditionally fish tagine is prepared with carrots, potatoes, bell peppers and olives. Any firm or thick fish can be used for this Moroccan recipe. Serve with couscous, rice or crusty bread to mop up the delicious sauce.
