Ingredients

  • 4 x 160g skinless blue-eye fillets
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons sumac*
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 eggplant, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 1 red capsicum, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves

Method

  • Step 1
    Place fish in a shallow bowl with 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice and toss to combine. Sprinkle with sumac, cover and set aside.
  • Step 2
    Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large, deep frypan over medium heat. Add the eggplant and capsicum, and cook, stirring, for 8 minutes or until the capsicum is almost tender.
  • Step 3
    Add the coriander and cumin, and stir to coat. Add the tomato, reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until the eggplant is tender but still holds its shape and most of the liquid has been absorbed. Stir in the sesame seeds. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  • Step 4
    Wipe out the frypan with paper towel.
  • Step 5
    Heat the remaining olive oil over medium-high heat in the frypan. Add the fish fillets and cook for 3-4 minutes each side until just cooked through.
  • Step 6
    Just before serving, stir the parsley leaves and the remaining lemon juice into the spiced eggplant. Divide the eggplant among 4 bowls or plates and top with the sumac fish fillets.
