Fishy Friday Dinner News – Hraimeh

Hraimeh and Rice

Enjoy the spices and creativity of Libya with Hraimeh and rice

Today we are swimming across the pont to Northern Africa and enjoying a spicy Libyan specialty. While most of the cuisine of Libya is based on lamb the opening paragraph of Hraimeh – Fish Pouched In a Spicy Gravy (Libyan Pouched {sic} Fish) describes the variety of fish throughout the coastal region and provides a nice starting point to understand the invading influences and local seafood availability.

For some side dish and dessert suggestions take a stroll  through 16 March 2011 Dinner News – East Coast of Libya or 8 March 2011 Dinner News – Southern Libya for regional additions to a Libyan evening at your dinner table.
