Ghalieh mahi (southern Iranian spicy fish and herb stew), from Turmeric and Saffron

Ghalieh mahi, a southern Iranian spicy fish and herb stew, from Turmeric and Saffron.

After the party food and heavy holiday meals, I crave something lighter and, well, brighter. Turmeric and Saffron's Iranian spicy fish and herb stew overflows with garlic, red pepper, tamarind and fresh cilantro, fresh flavors that aren't traditional on my holiday menu. If you live near a Persian or Indian market, you'll be able to find fresh fenugreek leaves; if not, use good quality dried fenugreek. Any firm white fish (cod, halibut, tilapia, etc.) will work, so buy what looks best at your fish market. I would serve this with saffron rice.

I've never cooked anything quite like this, but it looks delicious!

Kalyn, I think you'd love it -- lots of cilantro!
