For one of our Christmas gifts, my very talented mother in law, Linda, made us a tagine. Yep, made us one. This is something we've been wanting to get for awhile, so we were very excited about the gift.
I did a little research, and seasoned the tagine before use. Our first attempt was Lamb Tagine with Dates and Chickpeas. We placed the tagine on the top of the stove, on top the cast iron griddle to accomplish the need for indirect heat (inside the oven would be fine as well). We had the heat too low, so a little more heat would have been better, but overall the dish turned out delicious - and beautiful.
We're looking forward to trying out more recipes:
Chicken Tagine with Apricots and Spiced Pine Nuts
Beef-Short Ribs Tagine with Honey-Glazed Butternut Squash
Fresh Nectarine and Plum Moroccan Chicken Tagine
Lamb, Quince, and Okra Tagine
