Sayadeya & Bulgur Wheat

Recipe Description:

Every summer, residents of Cairo eschew their dusty, dry climate for the fresh coastal breeze and sunny beaches of Alexandria. A bustling restaurant scene awaits them, serving up the ancient port city’s famous seafood dishes al fresco in the cool evening air. Top of the menu is sayadeya (literally ‘fisherman’s meal’), flaky white fish steeped in marinade before cooking in an onion-tomato sauce infused with smoky cumin. It’s as refreshing and full of sunshine as any dish served in the bistros and tavernas on the other side of the Mediterranean sea, bursting with peppery and herbal flavours that invigorate the gently cooked fillets.
