Easy Fish Shakshuka Recipe

You may have heard of Egg Shakshuka before which is basically eggs poached in a sauce of fresh tomatoes, peppers, and spices. However, the beauty of Mediterranean dishes like Shakshuka is that it is not a cooking method limited only to eggs. Using the same technique, the same can be done for other ingredients like seafood. Check out our fish shakshuka recipe.

Easy Fish Shakshuka Recipe

This Fish Shakshuka we bring you today is a classic Mediterranean fish fillet recipe. It consists of cooking Spiced fish fillets in a sauce of fresh tomatoes and peppers. It is a one-pot dinner that comes together in 30 minutes or less!

This dish is light which makes it perfect for breakfast and lunch. However, it also makes for a great meal at dinner time. Serve with flavoured rice or your favourite crusty bread for a more filling dish. If you really want to keep the carbs down and go for a more healthier option, this dish also goes well with quinoa or couscous.

This dish works well with many other sturdy white fish, however, Cod is the best option. Cod is a great blank-slate fish, it does not compete with the flavour of the sauce like say salmon would. Tilapia is also a great fish to use for this dish. The only problem, with Tilapia, is that it is quite delicate. Therefore, it can fall apart easily whilst being cooked.

Easy Fish Shakshuka Recipe
Instructions
  1. To make the spice mix, in a small bowl mix the coriander, sumac, cumin, dill and turmeric. Once well mixed, set it aside.
  2. In a large, deep skillet heat 2 tbsp. olive oil. Sauté the onions for 2 minutes then add the garlic and jalapeno. Cook on medium-high, stirring regularly, until fragrant and golden in colour.
  3. Once the onion, garlic and jalapeno are cooked, add the tomatoes and only half of the spice mix. Follow this by adding the tomato paste, lime juice, water, salt and pepper then stir to combine. Bring to a high simmer, then turn the heat down to medium-low. Cover and cook the tomato mixture for 10 more minutes. Make sure to stir occasionally.
  4. Meanwhile, season the fish fillets lightly with salt and pepper and coat on both sides with the remaining 1/2 of the spice mix.
  5. Gently add the fish fillets to the tomato mixture. Cook on medium-high briefly, then reduce the heat to medium. Cover and cook for another 10-15 minutes until the fish is cooked through.
  6. Remove from heat and top with the fresh parsley and mint leaves. Serve immediately in bowls with Lebanese rice or your favorite crusty bread.
