Moroccan dorado cooking:

Step 1: Prepare the lemons.

The day before cooking dishes must be thoroughly washed with lemons and doused with boiling water. After that, cut them into thin circles and remove all the bones. Then put them in a cup and sprinkle with a small amount of salt. Cover the cup with a lid or plate and leave it overnight, infuse at room temperature.

Step 2: Cut the fish.

Since I bought fresh fish, the first thing you need to clean it from the scales and remove all the insides. Here is a good video on how to cut a fish, shown on the example of pike. After that, wash the fish under cold running water. Then we rub the carcasses with salt and pepper inside and out. We are all doing this the next day, immediately when we begin to prepare the dish.

Step 3: Stuff the fish.

Now wash the green cilantro and dry it. Take the leaves of cilantro and put them inside the dorada. Then, using a sharp knife, we make shallow vertical cuts on each side of the carcasses.

Step 4: Cook the sauce.

In a bowl with a whisk, beat the olive oil with ground paprika, sugar, salt and black pepper. Separately, rinse under running water mugs of lemons from salt.

Step 5: Bake the Moroccan dorado.

Set the oven to heat. 200 degrees. We shift the fish to the baking sheet for the oven. The mold can be greased or covered with baking paper. Cover it with lemon circles and olives. Pour all the sauce and send to bake in the oven 20-25 minutes. Periodically water the fish with juice, which it will let during baking.

Step 6: Serve the Moroccan dorado.

Cover the finished fish with foil and let it stand in this form for about 10 minutes. Then we shift the dorado to a serving dish. Serve with a light vegetable salad. Enjoy your meal!
