The word Sayyadieh comes from the word Sayd and it means to hunt or to fish in Arabic. This dish is mostly prepared using fish but you can rarely find it made with chicken. It is a Middle Eastern dish, some say from Lebanon, others say it’s from Palestine but for today, this dish is from my kitchen!
Making Sayydieh with Different Types of Fish.
I prefer cooking with Basa fish since it has a mild flavor and when you cook Basa, even if you fry it, the smell of fried fish won’t fill your house, this is a great advantage, if you are having guests over. You don’t have to fight the smell of fish out of your house and having said that, you can use any type of fish you like.
Sayyadieh is available in different versions, I choose the version with more spices and flavor because you know how particular I am about good tasting food, besides I won’t share it with you if it didn’t meet the expectations.
This recipe is easy to make and light, perfect if you are working since it doesn’t take much time, and is easy on your wallet too.
When making Syyadieh be careful when seasoning it with salt, most of the time the stock has plenty of salt. I have used long grain rice, feel free to use any type of rice you prefer but keep in mind that according to the type you choose you may add more or less water to cook the rice.
