Zissy has been making this Moroccan Fish dish for over a decade. If you like a white fish, be it hake or something meatier, it’s a non-fussy crowd pleaser. So naturally this is one of her recipes my siblings and I ask her for. When we do that, she’ll usually say go look on Nutreats, but when I discovered that this recipe was actually not published, I realised it needed to be. At the very least it’ll be accessible to my family, but maybe you’ll love it too!
