Spicy Fish and Rice Recipes

Ingredients :

juice of 1 lemon

3 tbsp oil

2 lb cod steaks

4 large onions, chopped

1 tsp ground cumin

2-3 saffron strands

4 cups fish stock

2.25 cups basmati or long grain rice

1/4 cup pine nuts, lightly toasted

salt and ground black pepper

fresh parsley, to garnish

Method :

Blend the lemon juice and 1 tbsp of oil in a shallow dish. Add the fish, turn to coat thoroughly, then cover and marinate for 30 minutes. Heat the remaining oil in a large saucepan and fry the onions for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain the fish, reserving the marinade, and add to the pan. Fry for 1-2 minutes each side until lightly golden, then add the cumin, saffron strands and a little salt and pepper.

Pour in the fish stock and the reserved marinade, bring to the boil and then simmer for 5-10 minutes or until the fish is nearly done. Transfer the fish to a plate and add the rice to the stock. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently for 15 minutes until nearly all the stock has been absorbed. Arrange the fish on top of the rice and cover the pan. Steam over a low heat for 15-20 minutes. Transfer the fish to a plate, then spoon the rice onto a large flat dish and arrange the fish on top. Sprinkle with toasted pine nuts and garnish with fresh parsley.
