      Wow! I was little skeptical about the seasonings, only until I sampled the marinate. Instead of tomato paste I used puree (I had an opened can). The fish was very tasty. The spices didn't overpower it. Make sure you don't overcook. Thanks for a great recipe, Kim.

      Kim - you MUST try this!!! This is without doubt the BEST way of doing a Middle Eastern fish dish that I have tried recently - it just blew me and Malcolm away - REALLY!!! It was simple, elegant and the seasoings were 100% SPOT ON perfect! I used 3 small monkfish tails each and reduced the cooking time by about 5 minutes. The colours were gorgeous and the flavour was subtle and very tasty. I served this with my own Cheat's Easy Spiced Couscous With Fruit and Nuts - in a Jar! with the couscous as the only accompaniment. I made this for the Aussie/NZ recipe swap - but I intend to make it as soon as this weekend again, for company! Awsome - THANKS so much! FT:-)
