How To Make Spiced Bulgur Pilaf with Fish

Cooking fish can be very tricky, especially if some are too delicate to be cooked. Well, with our fish recipes, it’ll be easy as 1-2-3. We’ve got the details on different cooking methods for the perfect fish dish.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes
Total: 40 minutes



  • 1 cup bulgur
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional, for extra heat)
  • Salt, to taste
  • 4 fillets of your favorite fish (such as cod, tilapia, or salmon)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish


  1. In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add bulgur, cover, and let it simmer for 10 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the bulgur is cooked. Set aside.

  2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic, and sauté until translucent.

  3. Add cumin, coriander, turmeric, paprika, and cayenne pepper (if using). Stir well to coat the onions and garlic with the spices.

  4. Add cooked bulgur to the skillet and mix well with the spiced onions and garlic. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  5. Season the fish fillets with salt. In a separate skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook the fish fillets for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and flaky.

  6. Serve the spiced bulgur pilaf with the cooked fish fillets on top. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
