Fish Shawarma

After my recent excursion to Israel, I came home wired with creative ideas. I was eager to try every Mediterranean style recipe, first one being this dish. I tested this one out quite a few times, and I think that this might be my best fish recipe yet. This healthful yet delicious recipe is bursting with overwhelming flavor, and I'm so excited to see what you think!

  • 2 Bronzino fillet, thinly sliced into bite sized pieces

  • 1 bunch of cilantro and flat-parsley

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons of sumac

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon of ground coriander

  • Pinch of cinnamon

  • Salt & pepper

  • 4 cloves of garlic, pasted or minced

  • Optional: Tahini sauce​

  • Pickled onion

  1. Clean and cut the fish

  2. In a large ziplock bag, combine the olive oil, garlic and spices.

  3. Place the fish inside and let it marinate overnight or for about 2 hours.

  4. Once the fish is marinated, heat a grill pan and place the fish on top. (No oil needed since the marinade contains it.)

  5. Saute the fish until golden-brown.

  6. Serve over tahini and garnish with pickled onion, parsley, and cilantro.
