    This attractive, spicy fish dish is very popular in Tunisia. Small cubes of salted eggplant can be substituted for the zucchini.

      Wash & dry the fish fillets, season with salt & pepper then sprinkle with the juice of 1 lemon, set aside. Mix the flour, bread crumbs, & paprika together in a bowl.

      This was the first fish dish I've ever tried to pass off onto the family. I must say I was pleasantly surprised with how good it really was. I followed the recipe exactly except to omit the harissa since kids would be eating. Served with a side of Spiced Potato Cakes which tasted GREAT dipped in the tomato sauce. Even tho I'd be more likely to use chicken next time, the recipe is still a keeper!

      This was a lovely dish. I'm not normally a fan of white fish, but the spiciness and a flavour of the tomato really makes up for it. It's a pretty looking dish and the zucchini balances the meal really well. Served with rice or pasta or on thickly sliced fresh bread, this is a lovely meal. Reviewed for photo tag 2008
