    • For the marinade:
    • 2 tsp ground cumin
    • 1 tsp smoked paprika
    • 1 tsp ground coriander
    • 4 tbsp lemon juice
    • 2 large garlic cloves, peeled
    • 1 small bunch of fresh coriander
    • 1 tsp salt
    • For the tagine:
    • 4 x 150g skinless cod fillets
    • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
    • 3 yellow peppers, deseeded and sliced
    • 200g cubed butternut squash
    • 6 ripe plum tomatoes, roughly chopped
    • 100ml vegetable stock
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 tbsp roughly chopped preserved lemon
    • Chopped fresh coriander, to garnish


    • Blend the marinade ingredients in a food processor or grind in a mortar and pestle until smooth. Rub half of the mixture over the fish fillets, cover and chill for 45-60 minutes.

    • Place a shallow casserole dish over a low heat and add the garlic, peppers, butternut squash and tomatoes. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.

    • Stir in the remaining marinade and the vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Season well, cover with a lid and cook for 12-15 minutes.

    • Place the fish fillets on top of the vegetables in the casserole and add the preserved lemon. Cover and cook over a medium-high heat for 10-12 minutes until the fish is just cooked through and flakes easily.

    • Garnish with chopped coriander before serving.
