When I started this blog I would never have thought that I would be posting a recipe for shellfish. I have never made a single fish or shellfish dish, which may sound odd coming from someone who loves food and cooking. I’ve tried on a number of occasions different fish and shellfish but every time, it just didn’t taste right and some of it was too ‘fishy’ tasting for my liking.
This dip is loosely based on the Middle Eastern dip muhammara. Although I lived in the Middle East for 10 years, I had never tried or had even heard of this dip (and I tried A LOT of Arabic food) then on a visit back to see my Dad we went to a new cafe and muhammara was one of the dishes we were served. It was love at first bite for me. It’s spicy yet you don’t lose the flavour of the peppers and walnuts.
