Baked Fish Stuffed with Sumac Mix سمك مشوي بالسماق
(Makes 4 servings)
This recipe is adapted from the thirteenth-century Baghdadi cookbook. Originally fish is to be baked in the tannour, but the regular oven will do the job just fine. Although the recipe calls for a whole fish, which would be a nice thing to have, I sometimes use the whole tail part of a medium to big salmon, slash the skin and fill it and tie it the way I normally do with a whole fish

2 1/2 to 3 pounds whole fish such as a small salmon or 2 big trout, butterflied. Keep skin and make 2 to 3 diagonal slashes on the outer skin on both sides
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
For the stuffing:

1/2 cup sumac, see Glossary
1/4 cup za'atar or thyme, see Glossary
1/2 teaspoon coriander, cumin, cinnamon, each, optional
4 cloves garlic, grated
1/2 cup toasted walnut, chopped
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
About 3 tablespoons water
