Yellowtail Snapper with Moroccan Spice


Yellowtail snapper was featured today at Whole Foods, so I bought one. I decided to cook it with some Moroccan-style spices, onions, tomatoes, dried apricots, and preserved lemon.

My newest spice: Ras El Hanout. I made the preserved lemons
last November -- lemons in salt and lemon juice. I also used some
slow-roasted tomatoes from the farmers' market, frozen last August.
Olives and pomegranate seeds were the garnish.  
After cooking the spices and vegetables for quite a while, I added the fish.
The fish and some couscous with the tomato sauce. Also a bit of Len's bread from last night.

Boy does that look good! I sure wish we had a Whole Foods around here, but alas, we don't.

Beautiful combination of colors and tastes. I don't cook whole fish, as Bob has a bone fear, so just get fillets, but it does look great in your dish.

I'm not a fish lover but I'd like to try this. With the other ingredients you used, I think I'd like it.

I love fish but don't get to have it often because my son won't eat it.

I'm not super fan of fish but snapper is my favorite and you had me a lemon with salt! I should be checking whole foods more often!
