    I love fish, but seldom eat it unless I can see the sea, it is a strange rule I made years ago and i think i need to revisit it! These dishes look very good.. c

      I can understand your “strange” rule. When I lived in Prague, I decided I was too far inland to be able to eat seafood and as much as I love it, I just didn’t eat it for the better part of two years. And come to think of it, I had done the same during the two years previous in Northern Italy! And then I decided I would never, ever, ever, live landlocked again. And I haven’t.

    That’s funny, I noticed your post email as I left this morning. Later I had to wait for prayer to finish before the food stalls, in the Moroccan section on Goldbourne Road, reopened for lunch – so I could get the hot aladass soup with extra harissa (it was cold today).
    While I waited, I bought dorada for dinner. Now I’m looking at your post and wondering if something subliminal happened… 😉

    All of them look delicious and as someone who loves fish but never knows how to make it I am dying to try the cod and capers as well as the Salted cod. Can’t wait!

      I’ve had very good feedback on that cod recipe. Friends have made it and were very happy about it. Let me know what modifications you make. And with fish like this, go easy on the heat. Less is more!
