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.

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!

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!

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.

Moroccan Preserved Lemons

Moroccan Preserved Lemons by Amos Miller

Moroccan preserved lemons are an absolute necessity to complete dishes from salads to tagines (stews). Extremely easy to make, adding a unique flavor and texture to the dish, I have kept preserved lemons for as long as a year in the 'fridge without any problem. After all, you're basically talking about lemon juice and salt. But you…

While we all loved the other recipe (chicken and eggplant stew..on this…
