Spicy Fish with Arabic Orange & Nasturtium Salad


Spicy Fish with Arabic Orange and Nasturtium Salad



  1. Combine 1/2 tsp each chilli, cumin and cinnamon with 1 tablespoon oil and 1 teaspoon salt to form a paste. Coat the fish in the spice mixture.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frypan over medium heat. Cook the fish for 2-3 minutes each side until golden and cooked through.
  3. Rest, loosely covered with foil, while you prepare the dressing and salad.
  4. In a bowl, combine the sugar, pomegranate molasses and remaining spices and 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil. Whisk together until the sugar has dissolved and set aside.
  5. Peel and remove the white pith from oranges, then slice into thin rounds and arrange on 4 plates. Scatter over the radish, pistachios, olives and watercress.
  6. To serve, top each plate with a piece of fish, garnish with the nasturtium flowers and leaves and drizzle with the dressing. Serves 4.
