Fried Fish Persian Style
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
1.2 teaspoon of coriander seeds
1/2 teaspoon of cumin seeds
5 garlic cloves
a pinch of saffron
juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon
In a big mortar, grind all the spices together with the garlic cloves. Mix this paste with lemon juice and olive oil. Marinate piece of fish in this sauce for 3 hours in the fridge. Take the fish out of the fridge and cover both sides with breadcrumbs. I don't buy breadcrumbs, I use old bread that I grate it. Fry it in hot olive oil. Serve it with saffron/white basmati rice.
Saffron/White Basmati Rice
This rice is very simple. Cook white basmati rice per usual. Separate 1/4 of cooked basmati rice, and mix it with saffron water. Place the white basmati rice and on top the saffron rice. ENJOY!
Both dishes sound and look wonderful. Omelette made with lots of fresh herbs must be very healthy and nutritious.ReplyDelete
