Fish Tagine is a healthy delicious dish common to North African region, especially in Morocco. It’s one of my favorites Moroccan Recipes when entertaining guests. The tremendous spices mixed with fresh fish and vegetables is a crowd entertainer. The fish is marinated in a chermoula sauce to absorb all the fantastic spices before cooking.

Fish Tagine

Fish Tagine is cooked in a traditional technique in a ceramic tagine. However, it can be cooked in a heavy-lidded pot also. This dish as it cooks emits some of the most fantastic aromas all over the house. Serve with rice or couscous and crusty bread to mop up all the tremendous sauce.

    Serve the tagine directly from the dish in which it was cooked, with Moroccan bread for scooping up the fish and sauce.
