Fish Couscous with Onion T'faya

September/October 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.5 (30 votes)

T'fayas, special-occasion dishes served all along Morocco's Atlantic coast, are known for their thick, sweet and heavily spiced sauces. This one gets a pleasant layer of sweetness from raisins and a touch of sugar, which marries perfectly with halibut.

OMG! Delish!!!

I HATE fish, but because I'm trying to eat healthier I tried this. I took my first bite with trepidation, only to be blown away from the wonderful taste. Even the picky kids were gobbling it up. Did I mention that I really HATE FISH? I don't hate it anymore! I used Tilapia in this dish.

Exciting Change of Taste

Loved the taste and the simplistic nature (of a two-dish meal). Modified it slightly by making 1/2 the recipe and omitting raisins (although I realize this was probably not ethnically correct) and adding a chopped carrot. We loved it and I will make it again, although I may add more ginger! Served it with green beans on the side.

Flavorful

I made this recipe tonight for the first time and used grouper. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. It was fantastic. The whole family loved it, even the kids who are picky eaters! Although, I think I will toast the slivered almonds in the oven next time, easier to get them to turn golden more evenly that way and no need to add the extra oil. I'm wondering if anyone has tried this recipe without the butter and substituting more olive oil. I may try that next time.

This one is terrific. Have made it many times and it rich but not heavy. Complesity of flavors makes it special and a nice dinner vacation.

I have made this dish several times and it is fantastic. I usually use cod because it is more available, but I don't think the fish really matters because the blend of spices is just very complex and very satisfying.
