Blue-eye with sumac and coriander.
  • 4 blue-eye fillets, boneless (about 200g each)
  • 3 tbsp sumac
  • 1/2 cup coriander leaves
  • 200ml olive oil
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  1. Press the fish onto the sumac to evenly coat and place in a shallow dish big enough for 4 pieces. Sprinkle with coriander and gently pour over the olive oil. Leave to marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180C. Sear the fish on both sides in a frying pan over high heat, then transfer to an ovenproof dish. Bake for 5-10 minutes, or until just cooked through.
  3. Serve with couscous and a rocket salad, with lemon wedges on the side.
