Cornish New Potato & Chermoula Fish Tagine

Perfect for a light summer lunch or dinner, this chermoula fish tagine uses seasonal Cornish New potatoes, which have a mild, sweet taste and a delicate fluffy skin.

They are the first UK mainland crop of the year, grown in the rich, fertile Cornish soils close to the sea and are available from major retailers across the UK through May to August.

The Cornish New potatoes in this tagine really soak up the delicate flavours in the spicy chermoula paste.
