Maahi Kabab Recipe روش تهیه ماهی‌ کباب
barbequed fish with lime juice, olive oil, saffron, and herbs
Recipe for 4 Servings

Ingredients

  • whole fish (such as salmon or cod)
  • fresh lime juice, 1/2 cup
  • extra-virgin olive oil, 1/2 cup
  • coriander, 50 grams
  • parsley, 50 grams
  • mint, 50 grams
  • saffron, 1/2 teaspoon
  • salt
  • black pepper


Cooking Method

Note that fresh fish should have raised eyes and should be bright red under the ears.

Cut fish length-wise from below. Remove insides, then wash inside and out, and dry thoroughly. Place each side under grill at high temperature for 5-10 minutes so that the skin dries up. Remove fish and separate skin which should come off easily.

Prepare sauce as following: wash and finely chop coriander, parsley and mint. Add lime juice, olive oil, saffron, salt, and black pepper, and mix well.

Cover a suitable pan with aluminum foil and place fish on top. Add the sauce on both sides as well as inside. Cover with a sheet of aluminum foil and cook in oven at medium temperature for 45 minutes to one hour. Note however that exact cooking time depends on the type and size of fish. Take care not to over-cook. Add more sauce 2 or 3 times during cooking. When cooked, decorate fish with slices of lime or lemon and some parsley. Serve with Sabzi-Polow. It is customary to serve Maahi-Kabab with Sabzi-Polow on the Iranian New Year's day which coincides with the Spring Equinox.
