I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Moroccan White Fish

When I think of fish I usually think breaded or battered, kind of plain. But this aromatic recipe is anything but plain... it's colourful and bursting with flavour! 

1 lb (500 g) white fish fillets (2 tilapia fillets here)
2 tbsps parsley
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp turmeric
pinch of saffron threads
1 tsp fresh ginger
1 tbsp lemon juice

1 cup canned diced tomatoes with juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste

1 large carrot, sliced thinly
1 small onion, sliced thinly
1 lemon
8 kalamata olives
1/2 red pepper, sliced

Combine parsley, olive oil, paprika, turmeric, saffron, ginger and lemon juice. Coat the fish fillets on both sides and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

In a small saucepan mix the tomatoes, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper together. Mash a bit and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

Place sliced carrots, then onions, on the bottom of a greased baking dish. Spoon the tomato sauce over the top. Cover and put in a 350 F oven for 20 minutes or until the carrots are tender.

Add the fish topped with 1 tsp lemon zest, lemon slices, red pepper and olives. Pour the marinade in around the fish.

Return to the oven uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until the fish flakes easily.

Is this not gorgeous?

Serve with rice or couscous.
