Tunisian Spiced Fish


  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1/2 tsp dried hot pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 lbs cod fillets (snapper or bluefish will do)
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fish stock or bottled clam juice
  • parsley for garnish


  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add seeds, flakes and salt. Roast for 2-3 minutes until fragrant. Grind spices in a spice grinder [I used a mortar and pestle and it worked ok).
  2. Spread spices on fish. Let stand 10 minutes.
  3. Spray a ovenproof dish large enough to fit all the fish in one layer.
  4. Add 1/2 garlic, onions and tomato. Add fish. Add remaining garlic, onions and tomato.
  5. Pour over fish stock/clam juice over fish.
  6. Bake in a preheated 400 degree for 20-30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets.

Say Bismillah and eat!
