Fish stew, Bahrain

July 1, 2009  •  Category:


This dish was amazing. I adapted the recipe to make it simpler in execution. I made the sauce ingredients in the food processor. I transferred the sauce into a pyrex dish, placed the fish steaks on the sauce and then baked the fish for about 20 minutes in a hot oven. Perfect and simple and absolutely delicious!

I used sea bass steaks. Made the sauce and cooked the steaks in the sauce. Simple and fast and scrumptious.


4 sea bass steaks

2 teaspoons of  turmeric

4 Tablespoons of vegetable oil

2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced fine

2 Tablespoons of chopped or grated fresh ginger

3 medium onions, quartered

4 medium tomatoes, quartered

1 Tablespoon of chopped garlic, or mashed  with a pinch of salt

1 teaspoon of dried ground mustard, salt and pepper to taste

4 Tablespoons of fresh and chopped cilantro, for garnish


  • Place all the sauce ingredients in the food processor. Process until all ingredients are pureed.
  • In a baking dish, pour the 4 tablespoons of oil and the turmeric. Mix gently a few seconds then place the fish steaks on the mixture and let it absorb a few minutes.
  • Add the sauce from the processor to the fish steaks. Bake in a 375F oven (hot) until the fish steaks flake easily when prodded with a fork or a knife, around 25 minutes.

Remove from the oven, garnish with the chopped cilantro .img_4282img_4279
