8 fillets sole, boned and skinned
100g manouri, or other soft ewe’s milk or goats milk cheese
1 bunch picked coriander leaves
Extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon, cut into wedges
For the Marinade
1 tbsp coriander seeds toasted and ground
2 ½ tsp cumin seeds toasted and ground
60g peeled ginger, minced
15g peeled fresh turmeric, minced
15g garlic, minced
1 bunch coriander stalks, finely chopped
2 tsp Malden salt
1 tbsp Persian spice
50ml extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
2 tbsp rose petals, chopped (optional)
Juice of 1 lemon
Mix all of the marinade ingredients together well. Coat the fish liberally and marinate for 2 hours before cooking.
When you are ready to eat, roll the fillets loosely so that they look flower like and crumble over the cheese.
Drizzle over a little extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil if you prefer, then season and steam at 100% steam for 7 minutes.
