Baked fish is a super healthy way of getting your two portions of fish a week, which is the recommended portion by many medical authorities like the NHS.
It is common to have fish roasted, fried, or dried in Africa. Over the years, I have come to favor baking or broiling(upside down grill) to the other methods because with these two, I use less fat, which is healthy.
Atieke is made from peeled, grated and fermented cassava roots, an everyday staple in West Africa. It is a favorite side dish from Ivory Coast. It has a texture similar to couscous and a healthy alternative for any on a gluten-free diet. It is a simple, easy to prepare meal, readily available in most African food shops. Just follow packet instructions.
Atieke is usually served with grilled meat or fish along with vegetables. The Ivorians sometimes add a tomato sauce or onion and tomato salad sides as well.
As mentioned earlier the atieke is pretty staright forward, you only need water and the atieke and follow packet instructions. However, the baked fish requires a bit of work but easy to do.
