seafood tagine

"Tagine is a Moroccan dish, though it is common through out the North African region known as the Maghreb, which also includes Algeria and Tunisia. Food from the Maghreb first surfaced in France in the mid-19th century, after France conquered Algeria in 1830, later annexing Tunisia and Morocco.” -- NY Times

It is traditionally used to flavor fish or seafood, but it can be used on other meats or vegetables. Common ingredients include garlic, cumin, coriander, oil, lemon juice, and salt.
