Fish with chickpeas and Za’atar (from Gourmet Traveller)
This is a fabulous recipe; healthy, slimming and oh- so- easy to make after a hard day at the shops. You might want to serve it with some beans or salad. And what is Za’atar you ask? It’s a Moroccan spice mix that can easily be found at Herbies spices
