Moroccan Fish Tajin

     It's a new day, it's a new month, and it's a new recipe! 

     I want to share with you a famous Moroccan recipe; Fish Tajin. Actually, there are a lot of seaside areas in Morocco where you may find Fish tajin restaurants. So, a lot of people may have heard about it. It's delicious, spicy, and healthy. You may use almost any type of fish in this recipe. Personally, I prefer white fish. However, there are a lot of Moroccans who favor oily fish, such as sardines, to prepare their tajins.

     Besides, I am presenting the Moroccan Chermoula, which is a marinade used mainly with fish recipes, but it may be used in some other recipes as well. I hope you enjoy my recipe!



- 7 to 10 gloves Garlic
- A small bunch of Parsley and Coriander
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp vinegar
- Salt, cumin, and a tbsp of paprika.


- 1 or 2 medium size fish of your preference
- 2 potatoes, sliced
- 1 big tomato, sliced
- 1 green pepper, sliced
- 1 hot perpper
- 2 to 3 lemon slices
- Chermoula (already prepared)
- Additional seasonings: salt, cumin, paprika and some oil if needed.
- 1/2 cup Water


1- To prepare your Chermoula: Except oil and vinegar, process all the other ingredients in a food processor, or blend with a hand blender until smooth. Add oil and vinegar and mix with a spoon.

2- In a separate bowl, use half of your Chermola to coat the fish.
3- In a tajin, layer potatoes slices, coated fish, tomatoes, pepper, then place the hot pepper and lemon slices on top.

4- Add water to the remaining marinade, add additional seasonings and oil if needed, then pour over the tajin. Cook for 30 to 45 min on low heat. 

Enjoy your meal!!
