It’s the time of the year where we get to eat the stinkiest food ever created. The pleasure that feseekh and renga bring to our lives cannot be put into words. Those who find it impossible to be around the rotten odor simply have no place in our lives this week.
Yet, the routine is killing us and we are definitely ready for some new recipes this year. After all, this might be the last salty meal we have till the end of Ramadan, so let’s do it right.
Here are some different feseekh recipes to try this week:
You can stick to your tradition and eat it straight from the open fish with bread
Or save your hands from smelling like a nightmare and take the meat out of the fish into a bowl. Add salt, pepper, and oil and turn it into a side salad.
Feseekh purée. Add jalapeno, lemons, tahini, vinegar, spices, and blend.
Another recipe that camouflages the smell includes adding cumin, spices, garlic, onions, paprika, a whole lemon, olive oil, jalapeno, then blend.
Another unconventional Feseekh salad includes adding a boiled egg, baked potato, red onion, green onion, dill, mayonnaise, sour cream, and crunchy toast
Surprisingly, some people fry feseekh and add tomato sauce.
