This mixed fish soup from Tunisia is more like a stew, so could also be served as a main course.

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the onions until soft.
  2. Add the peppers and garlic and when the peppers are soft, add the fish stock, water or court bouillon.
  3. Stir in the potatoes, salt, saffron, cumin, cinnamon, harissa and preserved lemons and simmer, covered, for about 30 minutes.
  4. Add the fish, tomatoes and herbs and add further liquid if necessary and cook for a few minutes until the fish is done.

Serving suggestions

Serve with bread.

Variations

You can also add 2 tablespoons of capers, 2 tablespoons of caraway seeds and/or 1 teaspoon ground coriander. Use the juice of 1½ lemons instead of the preserved lemons and if you do not have any harissa, substitute it with 1 teaspoon paprika and ½ teaspoon Cayenne pepper.

Chef's notes

Use a mixture of firm fish, eg monkfish, gurnard, bream or bass and some delicate fish, eg whiting, cod or haddock, together with small whole fish, eel chunks, squid, prawns or crabmeat.
