    mersaydees's Note:

    Based on a recipe from The Best of Clay Pot Cooking by Dana Jacobi. Dana says, “If you can, make this dish as Moroccan women have for centuries, in the cone-topped clay cooker that gives it its name – otherwise a Dutch oven works well.”

      Delicious tagine. The addition of olives and preserved lemon really make this dish. I cooked it in a dutch oven and served with couscous. Thanks for posting.

      This was very good! Used kalamata olives because I like them better, but everything else as listed. Loved using my tagine! Thank you for posting. ZWT6
