“Not a fish person? This one will change your mind, it's to die for! We had this dish made for us by a Moroccan friend of ours and it was so good I couldn't quite let anyone take my dish away. I had to get up and clear the table myself so I could have an excuse to enjoy it down to the last drop in the kitchen (it never happened of course because a Moroccan meal just gets better and better); this sauce is just delicious! Thank you Miri S.!”
