Baked Fish with leek and Egyptian Salad

“We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlic” – Numbers 11:5
This recipe combines the flavors of baked fish with the delicate taste of leeks and the freshness of an melon salad. The dish is inspired by the biblical verse from Numbers 11:5, in which the Israelites recall the delicious fish they ate in Egypt, as well as the variety of produce they enjoyed. The leeks add a subtle sweetness to the fish while the salad provides a tangy contrast. This is a perfect meal for those looking for a healthy and delicious dinner option.
