I'm really proud of this beautiful dish. I'm not sure what the mechoui man I met in the market in Marrakesh would make of it, but I like to think I'm respecting the way he cooks, by using local ingredients, and linking it back with touches like the carrot and orange salad. What's great is that you can easily make this dish at home and totally get that authentic taste of Morocco. The only thing you might not be able to get hold of is smen, a type of fermented butter, but the normal stuff will work just fine.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
