As suggested in al-Baghdadi’s thirteenth-century cookbook, one of the many ways to prepare tareekh fish (dried and salted) was to fry it, debone it, cut it into bite-size pieces, then cook it with eggs and lots of spices (Arberry). The following dish is inspired by such recipes. In our modern kitchens, we can certainly substitute canned salmon or tuna.
