Moroccan FishSubmitted by: YIYEHTOV
IntroductionThis recipe is a wonderful use for cheap white fish-- it's SO flavorful and yummy with very little added salt, and it's about 300 calories per serving INCLUDING rice! You can use less garlic or less turmeric if you don't love them as much as we do.

This was pretty good, with the exception that I thought it was too heavy on the tumeric - next time I make it I think I'll halve the amount, and I bet I will really like it. Love the low cals even with the inclusion of the rice so I will definitely try it again! - 1/6/10

thanks for the comment! I love the amount of tumeric (I think it's what makes this dish so satisfying to me) but you can definitely reduce if that's not your taste.
