Mahi Zaferani - Sea Bream Fillet in Saffron ماهی زعفرانی

Mahi Zaferani – Sea Bream Fillet in Saffron ماهی زعفرانی

Are you craving fish? If so, try my Mahi Zaferani – Seabream Fillet in Saffron. On the Persian coast, fresh fish from the sea is grilled and served pure, with just a few herbs and bitter oranges to add flavor. I’ve taken it up a notch by preparing my tasty seabream fillets in a mouth-watering Saffron Sauce, as I’m a big saffron lover. The aromatic saffron sauce is made from saffron, lemon juice, and garlic, enhancing the fish’s flavor without overpowering it. This recipe is simple, delicious, and quick to prepare in a pan. Doesn’t it look delightful? I guarantee it tastes just as good as it looks! Watch my how to prepare Video on Instagram

Gluten-Free Baklava Triangles

My friendly soul welcomes you today with a smile and a special treat I’ve prepared for the upcoming Christmas celebration – Gluten-Free Baklava Triangles. The geometric splendor of Oriental architecture inspired me, so what do you think about my Middle Eastern response to the typically German Nut Corners? Did you know that I have an obsession with nuts? In particular, for almonds and pistachios? It’s no wonder that Baklava is one of my favorite desserts. During festivities in the Middle East, be it our Nowruz celebration, religious ceremonies, weddings, or Ramadan, Baklava is prepared as a symbol of abundance and communal joy.

Haft Sin Impressions 2023 هفت سین ۱۴۰۲

Haft Sin Impressions 2023 هفت سین ۱۴۰۲

This year Nowrooz is overshadowed by the violence against the people of Iran. We do not feel like celebrating this year, so I have designed my Haft Sin in the sign of peace. I have directed my peace sign on porose facing upwards, as the tree growing upwards stands for life and its new beginning, hoping for a new Beginning in Iran. The tree pointing downwards, as we know it from the Peace sign, means death or the end. I placed six wooden bowls with Samanoo, Sumach, Sekeh, Senjed, Sir, and Sib around my Sabzeh. I have explained the meaning of the symbols in this post. Flowers and candles in the trend color “Viva Magenta” are placed in vases and on glass and wooden chandeliers. I hope you like my Haft Sin Impressions 2023 هفت سین ۱۴۰۲. Watch Video on Instagram 

Sabzi Polo – Persian Herb Rice سبزی پلو

Sabzi Polo – Persian Herb Rice سبزی پلو

Monday was the beginning of spring and the same time as our New Year Norooz. On this day, many dishes are prepared with fresh herbs traditionally, for example, Sabzi Polo – Persian Herb Rice سبزی پلو ، Sabzi Polo ba Mahi – Persian herb rice with orange stuffed trout, Kuku Sabzi – Persian Herb Frittata , Ashe Reshteh – noodle soup with herbs, and Sabzi Khordan – Persian herb platter. Sabzi means herbs, and polo means rice, that is herbed rice. Tender fresh herbs are the first signs of spring, and in my Sabzi Polo, chopped dill, parsley, cilantro, scallions, a whole bulb of garlic, ghee, and saffron add a delicious touch to the rice. As in many Persian dishes, the herbs in Sabzi Polo vary, and each family has its favorite recipe. Watch Video on Instagram
