Jamie Oliver’s Quickest white fish tagine

Jamie Oliver’s ultimate user-friendly cookbook 7 Ways takes the nation’s most popular supermarket staples – the things most people already buy most of the time – and shows them seven new, exciting and achievable recipes to help reinvigorate everyone’s repertoire.

Here he shares his recipe for Quickest white fish tagine

Quickest white fish tagine

Sweet cherry tomatoes, harissa, asparagus & fluffy couscous




  • 150g couscous
  • olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 250g ripe mixed-colour cherry tomatoes
  • 250g asparagus
  • 2 heaped teaspoons rose harissa
  • 2 x 150g white fish fillets, skin off, pin-boned, from sustainable sources
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons natural yoghurt

Place the couscous in a bowl, add a pinch of sea salt and black pepper, then just cover with boiling kettle water, and cover. Peel and slice the garlic, then place in a shallow casserole pan on a medium-high heat with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, stirring while you halve the cherry tomatoes, adding them to the pan as you go. Snap the woody ends off the asparagus, roughly chop the spears and stir into the pan, then season with salt and pepper. Rub most of the harissa over the fish, sit it on top of the veg, finely grate over the lemon zest and squeeze over half the juice. Add 150ml of water, cover, and cook for 5 minutes, or until the fish is just cooked through.

Fluff up the couscous. Ripple the remaining harissa through the yoghurt, then spoon it over the fish and couscous. Serve with lemon wedges, for squeezing over.

Rather than asking people to change the way they shop, Jamie has researched what shoppers already buy week in, week out, and will offer seven new takes on 18 hero ingredients – including chicken breasts, salmon fillets, mince, aubergines, eggs, potatoes, broccoli and mushrooms.

With more than 120 recipes, from great modern versions of takeaway classics and trusty traybakes to family favourites and freezer friendly batch recipes, 7 Ways aims to simplify and demystify every day cooking, inspiring us to try new recipes with the same old ingredients.

Jamie says. “7 Ways is designed to be my most user friendly book ever. Packed with simple, exciting and delicious recipes – none of which require more than a small handful of ingredients – it’s been a joy to write.”
