Wash produce before use


Cook the fish

Cook instructions are identical for both fish options.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, combine the tomatoes, capers, ras el hanout, ¼ cup [½ cup] water, and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, add the fish, cover, and cook until the fish is opaque and flaky, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat. Using 2 forks, flake the fish into 1-inch pieces.
While the fish cooks, prepare the beet and dried plum salad.


Make the beet and dried plum salad

  • Juice the lemon.
  • Peel the beets and trim the ends. Using the large holes of a box grater and working over a medium [large] bowl, coarsely grate the beets.
  • Coarsely chop the dried plums.
In a small bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice and 1 to 2 tablespoons [2 to 3 TBL] oil.
To the bowl with the beets, add the dried plums, dill, and as much lemon vinaigrette as you like and toss to coat (set aside any remaining vinaigrette for serving). Season to taste with salt and generously with pepper.


Transfer the fish and sauce to individual bowls. Serve the beet and dried plum salad and any remaining vinaigrette on the side.
