    Chef Kate's Note:

    From "Shabat Shalom" by Susan Friedland, this is a typical Moroccan-Jewish dish. It's great as a main course, or would serve 8 as a starter. Prep time does not include time for making dried chickpeas (if you choose to use them).

      This is a really good, nicely flavored family dish. The chickpeas soak in all the flavors and go soft. The cod I cooked took only 10 minutes to be fully done, so the spices don't overpower the cod flavor. This is a dish that would be much appreciated by the young and the elderly because the texture is basically soft. Something crunchy is needed as a side dish.

      This was very tasty and easy to make. I used salt cod fillets which I de-salted for 2 days.
