North African fish stew with spinach and beet salad. TNS
Spice up cod fish fillets with a blend of cumin, paprika, garlic and red bell peppers. It’s a colourful dish packed with flavour. I used cod, but any type of white fish fillet can be used. The heat is up to you, if you like your sauce with more spice use a hot paprika instead. In a recent interview with Yaniv Cohen about his book, The Spice Kitchen, he explained how using just a few spices can help create a special dish with little effort. I adapted one of his recipes for this quick meal.
Beets add an earthy flavour and colour to the spinach salad side dish. You don’t have to cook raw beets. Cooked beets are available in the produce section. Or, you can find frozen spiral cut beets in the market.
Tomato paste can be used instead of tomato puree. Add a spoonful of water to it.
Minced garlic can be found in the produce section.
