Moroccan Couscous & Pan-Fried Fish


Couscous is a great alternative to the usual side of rice that you may have with dinner. It is light and such an easy recipe to make with most store bought packages cooking in 5-minutes. Since it is so light, I love to pair it with Fish or an array of vegetables. Couscous can be served plain, seasoned, or even with added goodies combined inside like this Moroccan Couscous recipe. I added green onion and sun-dried tomatoes to create a mild onion flavor and a rich smokiness from the tomatoes. Of course, the red & green aren’t bad to color up the couscous.

Delicious Rating: Making the Couscous is a very easy job. Even pan frying fish isn’t on the level of a ‘Master Chef’. This dish is simple and quick to cook up for dinner, either for a couple or a family. You can dress it up with a side of steamed vegetables too. I found it to be very refreshing and delicious. I definitely will make this Moroccan Couscous again!

Couscous is such a great grain because you can add whatever you want and it will always turn out delicious. I haven’t met a couscous dish I didn’t like.

I used skinless fish but if you want a bottom layer of skin, please, leave it on.

Make sure not to over cook or under-cook the fish. Drain on a paper towel before topping the couscous.
