  • About

In this dish, fresh fillet of cod is baked in a citrus-infused tahini sauce with sautéed onions, topped with toasted almonds and pine nuts. The flaky texture and mild flavor of the fish complement the nutty taste of the tahini with citrus. A squeeze of fresh lemon over the individual servings pops the flavor.


Specialty Ingredients

  • Tahini, found in specialty markets or online.
