Moroccan Fish Tagine

Rating: 4 stars 10
This delicious healthy fish tagine dish common to North Africa, particularly Morocco, is one of my favorites when entertaining guests. The wonderful spices blended with fresh vegetables and fish is a crowd-pleaser. The fish is marinated in a chermoula sauce to soak up all the wonderful spices prior to cooking. This dish is prepared in a traditional method in a ceramic tagine, but can be prepared in a heavy-lidded pot. This dish as it cooks emits some of the most wonderful smells throughout the house. Serve with couscous or rice and crusty bread to mop up all the wonderful sauce!

The Best White Fish Recipes (Also, What's White Fish?)
Health experts tell us we should be eating more fish. And we're all for it. We seek out salmontrouttuna, cod, halibut, and mackerel. But sometimes a recipe calls simply for "white fish." If you're not familiar with the family of fish called "white fish," the term refers to any white-fleshed fish like codtilapiaflounder, sole, halibutsnappercatfishhaddock, and grouper. When cooked, the flesh of white fish is dry and flaky rather than oily and firm like salmon, mackerel, or tuna. A general category like white fish has its upside: When a recipe calls for "any type of white fish," it frees you to make choices at the market based on what's freshest or what's the better bargain (tilapia is typically an inexpensive choice). We love the versatility. Now, to confuse matters slightly, in rare cases, a recipe that calls for "whitefish" may be referring to a specific freshwater fish found in the Great Lakes, which is called "whitefish" and is often smoked. However, that's not really what we're talking about here. We're talking about the versatile, white-fleshed, non oily fish called out above. Here are some of our best white fish recipes.
