This dish is easy and it doesn’t take much time to make. Moroccan spices are a great way to add a lot of flavor to white fish. While baking, the tomatoes soak up all the vibrant spices from the fish rub. When it comes out of the oven you have a smooth, tangy, delicious Moroccan tomato sauce. It’s great with rice or white quinoa if you're gluten-free or you can sop up the sauce with some crunchy Italian bread or couscous if you're livin' on the edge.
4 - 5oz pieces of Swordfish, Grouper, Halibut, Mahi or any other thick, firm substantial white fish
¼ cup minced parsley
1 T plus 1 tsp chopped garlic
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
1 T ground cumin
½ tsp ground coriander
pinch of ground cloves
1/4 tsp of cinnamon - I like less so I use 1/8 teaspoon
¼ cup plus 1 T extra virgin olive oil
2 T white wine or chicken stock
2 cups canned chopped tomatoes. I like Mieur Glenn brand. For a less chunky sauce use crushed canned tomatoes
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ tsp coconut sugar
salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 450º.
Rinse and dry the fish. Nicely salt and pepper each piece of fish.
In a small chopper or blender add parsley, garlic, cayenne, cumin, coriander, cloves, cinnamon, ¼ tsp salt, 1T olive oil, 2 TBL white wine (or stock). Grind up the mixture. Doesn’t have to be super fine. Rub the fish all over with this mixture. Don’t leave any mixture behind.
Place the 2 cups of tomatoes in a bowl. Mix in 1 tsp garlic, ¼ tsp sugar, ¼ teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper.
Spread 2 T olive oil on glass baking dish or roasting pan. Place fish on top of the olive oil. Cover fish with tomato mixture. Then drizzle on last 2 T olive oil.
Bake for 20 minutes and voila.
