Sami's Kitchen - Baked Deep Sea Perch marinated with Shish Tawook

Shish Tawook is a deliciously versatile Middle Eastern chicken dish using; garlic, paprika, pimento, nutmeg, thyme and cinnamon. Sami's Kitchen have re-created the spice blend used in this style of cooking and adapted it to this warming baked fish recipe.

  • 2 Deep Sea Perch fillets cut into half
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 teaspoons Sami's Kitchen - Shish Tawook spice
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • Half an onion, finely chopped
  • Bunch of Broccolini
  • Handful of Green Beans
  • 1/2 cup of Red Quinoa
Place perch fillets in plastic container with onion, garlic, oil and spice mix. Put on the lid, shake the container to marinate fish and set aside.
Thoroughly rinse the Red Quinoa under running water to remove any bitter taste.
Add 1/2 cup Red Quinoa to 1 cup water in a saucepan. Bring it to the boil. Reduce heat and let simmer whilst covered for 15 minutes. Keep your eye on it and once cooked set it aside and fluff with a fork.
Wrap the pieces of fish individually in baking paper and place on a tray. Make sure all the mainade is divided between the fish.
Place wrapped fish on a baking tray and place in oven at 180 degree heat fan-forced for 15-20 minutes.
Chop the end of the green breans and cut broccolini to 3cm lengths and place in saucepan. Boil for 5-7 minutes.
Serve fish on top of the Red Quinoa with the side of greens. Serves 4.
