Seafood and eggplant tagine

Seafood and Eggplant Tagine

Do something different for your weekend lunch with the family and serve something exotic but easy to pull off at home. Originating from Morocco, tagine is a stew-type dish with poultry, meat, or seafood plus vegetables and fruit. Slow-cooked in traditional cookware with the same name, tagines are as rich and hearty as Western-style stews but are cooked with much less liquid. The domed lid traps steam and sends the moisture back to the pot, ensuring that food is cooked to tender perfection. Serve this mouthwatering seafood and eggplant tagine with a couscous salad to complete your Sunday feast.

Bouillabaisse with Rouille

Bouillabaisse with Rouille

Bouillabaisse is a hearty, rich seafood soup made using different kinds of fish and shellfish, cooked in a delicious broth of vegetables, garlic, tomatoes, flavoured with saffron. Originally from the city of Marseille in France, this age-old dish was traditionally made with the “catch of the day” and less marketable kinds of small, bony fish. Back then, bouillabaisse would be served in two parts: the broth with bread and a spicy garlic sauce called rouille, then the fish. Now, bouillabaisse is eaten as a whole, making it something between a soup and a stew.
