Moroccan Inspired Shrimp Stew

Chef notes

This shrimp stew is inspired by a shrimp tagine I ate in Essaouira, Morocco. Essaouira is a stunning beach town with a massive, beautiful fish market that we could not stay away from. Every morning I would wake up early just to watch the fishermen haul in their catch and display it for people to purchase right out of the water. 

Tagine refers to the clay pot it is cooked in and the name of the dish. Usually tagines are slow cooked stews of chicken, beef or lamb but using shrimp gives you a healthy stew to enjoy in under 10 minutes. Cous cous is the starch of choice to enjoy with this dish but rice would also work.

Things to remember

  • Shrimp cook quickly so keep your eye on it.
  • Spices can burn easily which is why I like to keep the tomato sauce close at hand.
  • Add some chile flakes if you like it spicy!
