Moroccan spiced Fish with couscous

We love fish in our house and try and eat it 2-3 times a week. Not only is it healthy but its also loaded with Omega 3's which are essential for your wellbeing. But not all fish is created equal! Look for species that are high in Omega 3's (salmon is a great one) as this helps greatly with maintaining your skin so for us this is perfect for Lachlan and his eczema.

Serves 4
Prep & cook time about 10 mins – so easy!
1 cup of couscous
½ small red onion, finely chopped

1 tsp of lemon zest
1 tablespoon lemon juice
A handful of chopped coriander
Handful of organic sultanas
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 & ½ tablespoons of Moroccan seasoning if you can find additive free premade one (or use a mix of ground turmeric, cumin & coriander to create your own mix)
4 x firm white fish fillets (i used Flathead) about 180g each
1. Place couscous in medium sized heat proof bowl (thermoserver is perfect for this) stir in one cup of boiling water (I also added a sprinkling of HERBMERE (organic vegetable seasoning salt found in the health food section of Woolies or some Coles) and cover with Clingwrap for 5 mins or until liquid is absorbed, Using a fork fluff and separate the grains and stir in lemon juice, onion, sultanas, coriander and half the oil.
2. Meanwhile combine the seasoning, zest and remaining oil and rub the spice mix over fish, heat a large fry pan over moderate heat and add pan cook for 2 – 3 mins each side of until browned and cooked.
3. Spoon couscous onto plates top with fish and serve with steamed broccoli (not very Moroccan but we love green veggies!!)
