Turkish Spiced Fish & Güveç

Recipe Description:

Pronounced ‘gew-wetch’, güveç is a Turkish casserole or tagine, the name referring to both the clay dish and the food cooked inside it. Traditionally, a home cook would prepare the stew before bringing it to the local baker for cooking in a wood-burning oven. The baker would then send a messenger to carry the finished dish back to the household for serving. Güveç remains largely the responsibility of specialist bakeries, making it a well-kept secret of Turkish and Balkan cuisine. Which is a shame, because it’s an instantly familiar-feeling hotpot dish with cosy flavours that pair perfectly with these simply spiced home-fried fish.
