Spicy Moroccan Seafood (Keto; Paleo)

Keto Moroccan Seafood

This is a fantastically spicy Moroccan seafood can (mostly) be completely prepared the day before serving. When ready to eat, you will need only 10-15 minutes in the kitchen to reheat and finish the cooking – giving you plenty more time to spend with your guests. If you happen to have visited Morocco and returned with the mandatory keepsake tagine, now is your time to whip it out and use it to serve the dish. The dish is spicy, so adjust the minced chili to your liking.

Instructions
  1. Heat the olive oil in a pan and cook the onions over a moderate heat until softened. Add the garlic, ginger, Harissa paste, red chili, smoked paprika and cumin and continue to cook, stirring continuously to avoid the mixture catching.
  2. Allow the onions and spices to completely cook out.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes and the tomato concentrate. Pour in the fish stock and add the cinnamon stick. Bring the mixture to the boil, then reduce to VERY low and cover with a lid.
  4. Cook for 45-60 min, opening the lid to stir the mixture occasionally. (If you are making this sauce ahead of time, allow to cool and store covered in the fridge. When ready to heat and serve, return the mixture to a clean pan and gently reheat until piping hot. You may need to add a small dash of hot stock or water to achieve a good consistency.)
  5. Just before serving, tip all the completely defrosted seafood into the mixture which should be piping hot. Reduce the heat to moderate and stir well, allowing the seafood to cook through in the hot mixture for 10-12 minutes.
  6. Season the mixture with salt and freshly ground black pepper and top with a generous scattering of finely grated lemon zest and freshly chopped parsley. A good squeeze of fresh lemon will finish the dish.
  7. Serve with shirataki rice or seasoned cauliflower cous-cous, or just dive into the bowl as is.
  8. The full macro-breakdown (and allergens) can be found further down the page.
Recipe Notes

Start by defrosting the seafood appropriately (if using frozen) the night before. Spread the fish, prawns, squid, scallops and mussels out on a tray lined with kitchen paper and cover with another layer of kitchen paper. Wrap the tray with cling film and place in the fridge to defrost overnight. The next day, cut the fish into chunks and the squid into rings. Return to the tray lined with fresh, dry kitchen paper and cover again, returning the fridge until needed. For the sake of convenience, I used cooked mussels which I defrosted along with the other fish.
