Method

  1. Put the stock, saffron and chickpeas in a large, deep pan. Bring to the boil and simmer for a couple of minutes.
  2. Spread the Ras El Hanout seasoning out on a plate and roll the chunks of fish in it to coat well. Add the spring onion to the stock, then use a large spoon to add the fish carefully, and let the fish poach over a low heat for about 3 mins.
  3. Add the strips of tomato, heat for another minute, and then serve the soup in warm bowls, sprinkling each with coriander leaves. (Not suitable for freezing).
