Thank God It’s Friday: My Fish Curry!!! 

  

Hello from Bahrain! Currently, I am sitting on my sofa, where I do all of my blogging, and half of my reading (the other half I do it in my bed). In my pyjamas, and my hair is up in a messy bun. It is very quiet over here, and the reason is because my little rascal is asleep, after a long day of running around, swimming in the pool, playing with some home-made play dough, going out to see the birds, a trip to the supermarket and a football match with his mama lol! So yeah I am enjoying every minute of this precious silence! I do miss him though and can’t wait for tomorrow, to do it all over again. 

Today’s lunch was absolutely delicious, so I decided to share the recipe with you guys! And yes it is MY fish curry! A recipe I came up with, tried it and my husband loved it! 

 You will need: 

Fish fillets (any white fish will do) 

The juice of one lemon 

1 onion

Ginger (the size of a thumb) 

2 garlic cloves

1 chilli

Parsley and Coriander (few leaves each) 

1/2 cup of chopped lemongrass 

1 tomato (cut into pieces) 

200ml coconut milk

50ml cooking cream  

2 tablespoons fish sauce 

1 tablespoon of sugar 

1 tablespoon of butter 

After you clean the fish, season it very well with salt and pepper, and add the lemon juice, leave it for about 20 minutes.

In a blender, mix the onion, garlic, ginger, chilli, lemongrass, parsley and coriander, until you get a paste. In a pan, put the butter and add the paste you blended earlier, season with salt and pepper, let it simmer, then add the tomato, sugar and fish sauce. Place the fish fillets in the pan and let it cook for 5 minutes, then add the coconut milk and the cooking cream. When the fish is cooked your curry is ready! 

Bon Appetit!

Thank God It’s Friday: Something Is Fishy…

  

Hello friends! Happy Friday! 

So… it has been a week since we left Morocco, and we already miss it terribly! We miss the beautiful cool weather, (especially that the weather in Bahrain is so hot and humid now). We also miss the family and our loved ones. Adam definitely misses the morning trips to the park, with his grandfather, and i miss my mom’s cooking! That’s exactly why, today i decided that our lunch will be inspired from the Moroccan cuisine: Fish with Shermoula! Shermoula is basically the mix that would marinate the fish; you can use any type of fish, and either, grill it, fry it or simply bake it! It is so easy and this marinade makes any type of fish tastes absolutely amazing! 

You will only need: 

1 tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon pepper 

1 tablespoon paprika 

1 tablespoon cumin

3 crushed garlic cloves

The juice of one lemon 

Parsley and coriander (a handful of each) 

1 small chilli cut into small pieces

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, and marinade the fish in it, preferably for two hours or more, but if you were in a hurry, just give the fish a good rub with the marinade and it should be alright.  

Let me know if you make it, and how you like it! 

Bon Appetit!
