This dish is so Mediterranean in terms of the flavors that all meld together so well.

Seared crispy skin salmon dusted with earthy ras el hanout spice.

Rustic eggplant, chickpea & tomato compote scented with fresh & dried coriander.

Cumin-infused extra virgin olive oil with the mingled compote juices ties it all together.

Lots of great omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fiber, quality carbs & phytonutrients make it not only delicious but so good for you.
