At home, fish was usually baked in the clay oven tannour. It was butterflied, and laid flat on brick tiles arranged on the oven’s floor. Another way was to lay it flat in a long-handled hinged fish grill, and place it vertically in the tannour to cook slowly over the smoldering coals. However, for the less romantic, here is a more practical method for enjoying baked fish.
