THE NEW PERSIAN
You are privy to see one of the new recipes from my new book in progress, maasha’allah.
Tarragon, cinnamon pomegranates, common to Persian cooking, can be combine together in more of a wholefood way, dismissing the sugary pomegranate molasses for something more natural and wholesome, halal AND tayyib, the fresh pomegranate seeds AND pith.
All ingredients except fish and blended fish starting with the fresh pomegranate seeds as the seeds are tough, then add the oil and vinegar, then the spices and garlic
The fish is marinade in some of the mixture any left over marinade can be stored and used as salad dressing, OR increase quantities of ingredients,
