  • 1 tin of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of Harrisa paste
  • ½ teaspoon paprika powder (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon cumin powder
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 220g cherry tomatoes on the vine, cut into smaller bunches
  • 200ml - 250ml low salt vegetable stock
  • Salt and fresh black pepper to taste
  • Tahini Sauce: 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of tahini
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of low fat plain yoghurt
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Pinch of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Pinch of salt

  • Garnish with: Toasted flaked almonds

Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. In a deep sided large baking tray, combine the olive oil, garlic, vegetables, chickpeas, Harissa, paprika, cumin and turmeric and mix well to coat all of the ingredients. Pour in 200ml stock, give it a quick stir and place the vine tomatoes on top and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Remove and increase the oven temperature to 220°C. Give the baked vegetables a gentle stir, taste and check for seasoning. If the stock has been absorbed too much, add a little bit more. Lay the Birds Eye Seeded Crust Fish Fillets on top, pop the tray back into the oven for another 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile make a quick tahini sauce by whisking together all of the ingredients. Depending on the thickness of the tahini add a few small teaspoons of water to loosen. It should have a drizzling consistency.
  4. Once cooked, serve the fish and vegetables with some herby couscous and spoon over some of the tray juices onto the vegetables. Sprinkle with the flaked almonds, fresh parsley and coriander, and a drizzle of the tahini sauce and serve.
