Yesterday I went for a walk to our local shuk (open air market).
I wasn’t in the mood to cook, so when I passed the fish stand I knew that’s what I would get. Fresh fish is so easy to make, and the red snapper cost only $5 for three medium-sized fish.
When I got home, I washed the fish and put it in a bowl. Then I rubbed it with the juice of a lemon, and put the bowl in the refrigerator. In the recipe below I combine the ingredients before spreading them on the fish.
It all got finished, but one child refused it because of the dill. Next time I’ll buy four fish and leave one plain.
Recipe: Serves 3-4 adults
- 3 red snappers, about 1 kg. (2.2 lbs)
- Juice of one lemon
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 cup fresh dill
- 1/2 tsp. lemon zest
Combine the last four ingredients and rub them over the fish. Place the fish in a baking dish and bake at 180° (350°) for 25 minutes, or until the flesh of the fish is opaque.
