I cooked this dish last Friday. It was really good! I'm sure there are many other ways to make the Sayadeyeh, but I always try to make the dish appeal to me better. And as always I'll be glad to hear from you. Enjoy :)
2 pounds fish fillets (I used haddock fish)
2 cups rice (I used Basmati rice)
5 medium onion, sliced
1 cup flour
salt and pepper
all fish spices
water (about 4 cups, note that this amount depends on the rice you're using)
2 fresh lemons
- Soak rice in warm water for 30 minute.
- Wash the fish and dry it good
- heat 1 inch of oil in a skillet
- Dip fish fillets into flour mixture.
- Fry fish for about 3 minutes on each side; remove to a platter.
- In another skillet heat one tablespoon of oil and fry sliced onions until they are brown.
- In a deep pot arrange fried fish in the bottom and then add the fried onions until it makes a a layer over the fish.
- Wash the rice and rinse it, then add it to the pot over the fried onions.
- Add water, 2 tablespoon of the oil you used to fry fish, salt and pepper, and all spices. Bring it to boil and then cook the rice on low heat as you usually cook your rice.
- When the rice is ready flip the pot in a serving plate (so the fish will be on the top).
- Serve with sliced lemon
