When I think of a meal based on a light protein – something quick to make and yet satisfying – I think of fish. Have you ever considered fish luxuriously drizzled with tahini? (See how we make tahini at home, and our 8 Delicious Ways To Eat Tahini, too!) The finger-licking fish below satisfies the need for the authentic taste of traditional Middle Eastern food that comes over us sometimes.
Baked Fish in Tahini
1/2 cup tahini paste out of the jar
1/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 cloves of garlic, smashed
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 tablespoon olive oil
chopped parsley or cilantro, for garnishing
Line a baking pan with baking paper, or grease the pan well. Place the fillets on it. Lightly salt and pepper them.
Bake at 375 F – 190 C for 25 minutes.
In the meantime, blend tahini, water, lemon juice and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
