    Gday Is the recipe you are looking for combining fish and date syrup?

    Saw this on Facebook re authentic recipes

    http://www.facebook.com/posted.php?id=62175743286&share_id=322255072486&comments=1

    and MANY recipe dishes for this

    Masgouf, a traditional Iraqi dish made with fish from the Tigris. It is an open cut fish grilled and spiced with salt, pepper and tamarind. While keeping the skin on, it is then brushed with olive oil. Traditional garnishes for masgouf include chopped onions and tomatoes, as well as the clay-oven flatbreads common to Iraq and much of the Middle East.

    Hope this initially helps...

    once I clarify what you are looking for, can help you search further

    Hope you have a great day and

    WHOO HOO!

    Oh thanks a lot! I'm not sure if there is a recipe for fish using date syrup I just know date syrup, date molasses or dibs tamar in Arabic I believe is used quite a lot in Iraqi cooking. It may be in a rice dish with fish or not. I just thought it would go well together and if anyone knows about Iraqi food or is good at searching like you they may come up with something.

    That dish with the tamarind sounds yummy and something I may try. I will have more of a look at the link you posted insha Allah (God willing) tomorrow.

    know not date syrup, but am still looking

    saw this and sounded interesting

    Broiled Fish With Honeycomb:

    (Luke 24:41-43)

    Per serving:

    1/3 lb. White, firm-fleshed fish fillets or steaks.

    1 tbs. Olive oil

    1 tbs. Honeycomb

    Vinegar or lemon juice

    Instructions:

    Rub fish with olive oil and put into an oiled baking pan.

    Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or broil on low heat for 5 to 7 minutes on each side.

    Remove from heat and put a tablespoon of honeycomb on each fish fillet or steak.

    Turn up broiler to high and put fish directly underneath heat to glaze. Honey should caramelize into a light brown.

    Serve hot or cold with vinegar or lemon juice. Accompany with Barley Cakes.


    Barley Cakes:

    (Ezekiel 4:12)



    11/2 cups, hot milk

    ¼ tsp. Salt

    1 tbs. Honey

    3 cups, barley flour

    ¾ cup, raisins

    Oil for frying

    Instructions:

    Combine all ingredients and shape into balls. Flatten into rounds.

    Fry in hot oil 5 minutes on each side or bake 20 to 25 minutes in a preheated oven at 400-degrees.

    Date Syrup:

    ¼ lb. Dates pitted

    ½ cup, water

    Instructions:

    In a saucepan, combine dates and water and simmer on low heat until dates are soft. Mash dates into water and cook until thick syrup is formed. (Refrigerate).

    (This is very good over waffles and pancakes).

    I use date syrup on fish all the time! Like this,

    -3 TB date syrup
    -3 TB Soy sauce or Balsamic
    -2 TB olive oil
    -3 cloves of garlic, chopped or minced
    -2 tsp fresh ginger, minced

    Mix all together and marinade fish for one hour before baking or pan-frying.

    Delicious!

    (The ingredients, expanded, and with a little water added, makes an amazing salad dressing too! www.101usesfordatesyrup.wordpress.com is a great resource.)

    Soy sauce and balsamic are definitely not Iraqi ingredients or used in Iraqi cooking are they?

    Thanks for all your searching dear. No I am not trying to use it to be vegan as fish is animal which would be unvegan but I like the idea of veganism. I am trying to use it with fish as I think it would go well and date syrup/molasses dibis tamar is a truly Iraqi ingredient.

    I bookmarked that recipe and still have yet to go back and search around the facebook link you posted at first.
