Spicy Shrimp Moroccan Style

Spicy Shrimp Moroccan Style by John Spottiswood

These prawns are absolutely fantastic. Every time I make them I marvel at the density and depth of the flavors. I typically leave the Cayenne pepper out of about half of them if I'm cooking for the whole family. I often serve these in combination with a Moroccan chicken, fish, or lamb dish, but they work fine on their own too.

Harira Soup

Harira Soup by John Spottiswood

This is the traditional soup served at sunset to break the daily fast observed during the 30 days of Ramadan. Recipes vary from family to family throughout Morocco and the rest of North Africa. I'm particularly fond of this version. If you have not had this before, you MUST try it. It is truly delicious!

Cumin Rice

Cumin Rice by Joyce Leung

This rice is a delicious mix of cumin and cinnamon. It provides a nice, slightly sweet flavor, that is a perfect complement to any middle eastern dish. The only dishes I would avoid serving this with are sweet dishes with dates, figs, etc. I served it with my Braised Lamb with Beans. It was great!

Tilapia Broiled Egyptian Style by John Spottiswood

We adopted this recipe from our Egyptian babysitter in San Francisco named Hoda. We came to her house once to pick up our son and were greeted by the most amazing smell! She invited us to take a bite of the tilapia she had cooked. We were smitten. It was the first broiled, then soaked, recipe we had tasted, and it is still one of…

Moroccan Fish Soup

Moroccan Fish Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a flavorful, spicy soup that happens to be Moroccan but will remind you of fish soups found from Spain to Russia. It is a classic! Serves 4 as a main dish, 6 as an appetizer.

Leg of Lamb with Moroccan Seasonings

Leg of Lamb with Moroccan Seasonings by John Spottiswood

This was a wonderful leg of lamb that I cooked for a Holiday gathering this year. I took a base recipe for Moroccan Roast Lamb from one of my favorite cookbooks - Recipes from Morocco by Sufo. I then added roast potatoes and created a gravy from the drippings. It couldn't have come out much better. Everyone raved about it. I used…

Chicken and Eggplant Tagine

Chicken and Eggplant Tagine by John Spottiswood

I was shopping for a chicken and eggplant stew and both the eggplant and the bell peppers were on sale...so I bought extra. We ended up making two different recipes that called for chicken and eggplant two nights in a row, so we were able to really compare. While we all loved the other recipe (chicken and eggplant stew..on this…
