1 tbsp olive oil
Knob of butter
2 onions, finely sliced
2 carrots, grated
1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced
1 tsp cumin
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1½ tbsp harissa paste
200g bulghur wheat
700ml chicken or vegetable stock
200g baby spinach
4 white fish fillets, such as hake, haddock or pollack
Salt and black pepper
Juice of ½ a lemon
- Heat the oil and butter together in a large casserole dish over a medium heat. Add the onions and cook for 8-10 minutes until soft and golden. Add the carrots, pepper, cumin and garlic and cook for two minutes longer.
- Stir through the harissa and bulghur, then pour over the stock and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 7-8 minutes.
- Stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted, then turn the heat to medium-low. Arrange the fish fillets on top of the bulghur and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes until the bulghur is tender and the fish is opaque and flakes easily. Squeeze over some lemon juice, season with a little extra black pepper and serve immediately.
