EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Turmeric is an aromatic spice with a brilliant yellow color and a pungent, slightly bitter flavor. Often used in Indian and Caribbean cooking, turmeric is commonly added to poultry, rice, seafood and egg dishes.

Kalamata olives garnish this Moroccon dish to add a slightly salty flavor. Greek or even ripe olives can be used if you can't get Kalamata olives.

Dress up this dish for entertaining when you serve it beside couscous with raisins and Middle Eastern flatbread.
