Home Made by Yvette Van Boven includes recipes like Ham Pie; Mullet with Chermoula; and Fried Salsify and Carrot Au Gratin with Gorgonzola.



Mullet with Chermoula

Mullet with Chermoula

Plan on 2 small mullets per serving.

  • 8 mullets, cleaned and scaled (ask the fishmonger)

For the chermoula (Hassane told us you say "Tsar-millah")

  • A few strands saffron
  • 3 tomatoes, quartered, seeds removed, pulp cubed
  • 3 roasted bell peppers, cubed
  • 1 small bunch cilantro
  • 1 small bunch mint sprigs
  • 1 small bunch parsley (preferably flat-leaf)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tsp roasted cumin seeds, coarsely crushed in a mortar
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Olive oil

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F/Gas 4.

Prepare the chermoula: Soak the saffron in 3 tbsp warm water. Combine all other ingredients. Lastly, stir in the saffron threads with the moisture and season the chermoula with salt and pepper.

Place the mullets in a greased roasting pan, cover with half of the chermoula, and place in the hot oven for approx. 7 minutes. Once the fish is cooked, pour the other half of the sauce over it, and serve with bread and a green salad.
