Ball of Sardine Tagine Cooking class

the tajine was originally cooked over a wood fire on a “Majmar”, a sort of terracotta barbecue. For many, this remains the cooking method to obtain maximum flavor. This is what we offer as a cooking method for our homestay cooking classes. In modern kitchens, tajine can be put on any type of fire, by inserting a heat diffuser. If you do not have a tajine, the best alternative will be the use of a cast iron casserole. In all cases, favor slow cooking over low heat.


By following this light tajine fish recipe, you will learn how to make a “Shermoula”, a marinade for fish and the foundation of a number of Moroccan fish dishes. The tajine is cooked in a wood fire to make it even better.
