Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle the fish with sea salt & refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  3. Mix the olive oil, salt & 1/2 cup of water in a nonstick skillet. Cook the onions in the skillet for 10 minutes or until the onions are soft & the water has evaporated.
  4. Allow the onions to slowly turn golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic & cook for another minute or two.
  5. Meanwhile, steam the fish over a pot of boiling water until the flesh is barely flaky. Cool & break into small pieces. Mix the fish in with the onions then spread into the baking dish.
  6. Combine the tahini & 1/4 cup water by beating well in a mixing bowl. Gradually stir in the lemon juice until smooth & creamy.
  7. Pour over the fish mixture & cook in the oven for 15 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  8. Serve cool or chilled, garnished with fresh parsley.
