Tagine

I had a tagine for Christmas which had 1 recipe with it (Lamb Tagine) which is really great, but I would like to cook other meats and fish in it, but finding it difficult to find actual recipes that use the tagine itself. There are one or two, but the majority use stove top pans, which is not a lot of use when I want to use the actual tagine. If anyone has any recipes or can recommend a decent recipe book that would be brilliant. I do have a fish recipe that I am going to try so we will see.

Hi Julia

You'd probably find that a lot of your recipes would work as well in the tagine in the oven as on top of the stove. Just keep an eye on your temperatures and err on side of caution I would say

Hi if you look at Sam From Worthing's profile she has a really nice Beef Tagine on there which I can recommend.I'm sure there are lots of others on here who can give you recipes too.

I am a new owner of a Tagine - and love it. Did you get a diffuser with your Tagine? i think they are vital to help protect your pot and spreads the heat nicely.

I haven;t used mine in the oven yet - only stove top - and you can cook almost anything in it - in fact i made a chicken one yesterday - using chicken thighs.

I can;t give you any fish ideas as i have a fish/seafood hating OH - but chicken lamb and beef i could help with - have made tagines with all 3 of these so far. I will post my chicken recipe in a little bit.

and i have made my own harissa and frozen it in ice cube tray then popped in a bag - its great for adding a zing to plain rice - and couscous which i am still coming to terms with lol.

if a recipe says to use a fryin gpan or saucepan - use your tagine.

This is not adding anything, but my husband bought me a Le Cresuet one about 5 years ago and I have never used it. I was worried about the quantities, when it came to useing recipes that did not use actual tagines. Tagines *are* quite shallow.

Re Tagine

I do have a diffuser, but did not get it with the tagine, bought one seperately.
I suppose I could try it on the stove top using the diffuser and see what happens.
Thanks for the tips.

Re Tagine

Hi Rachel,
They do look quite shallow but they are quite deceptive. The one I have could serve 4 quite easily.

Tagine

I never brought my tagine - it was a gift. I was dubious about using it as i/we have never been keen on morrocaany type cooking and flavour pairings.

but our tastes have changed.

and i love my Tagine now, you can get a surprsing lot of ingredients into the one i have (it came from lakeland their stripey one) in fact i have to keep an eye on not adding too much liquid as i think no, thats not enough - but because of the steaming process that the conical lid makes - more liquid goes into the dish.

Only 2 of us, but, it easily cooks for 4 - with other dishes and accompiaments 6 - i can get 8 chicken thighs I can also get 600g of diced beef in mine with lots of other ingredients.
