Fish Pilaf easylebaneserecipesThe culinary term Kabseh indicates the method of cooking the main ingredient with the rice, be it fish, chicken or meat. It is what the western world knows as pilaf.

Yet, behold, taste and flavor of our Cod Fish Pilaf are nothing like the western pilaf or the Spanish paella.

Our particularity, as I mentioned, is in the variety of spices, as well as the garlic and onions with which we cook the main ingredient, and our cultural toppings of roasted nuts and almonds.

The original recipe uses the Brown Spotted Reef Cod but any fish filet of the Cod family works perfectly well.

You will enjoy this dish along with a side dish of Fattoush Salad.
