Moroccan-Spiced Fish and Couscous

Posted by | 01-02-2016
The Moroccan spices, fresh orange and yogurt give a nice lift to simple fish and couscous. You’ll be amazed at the nice texture and flavour you get by cooking the couscous in the milk. Serve some sautéed greens or a leafy green salad to complete the meal.       Ingredients:
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) grated orange zest
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) 1% plain yogurt
  • 4 skinless white fish fillets, such as haddock (about 1 lb/450 g total)
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) frozen green peas or chopped green beans, thawed
  • 2 cups (500 mL) 1% milk
  • 1 cup (250 mL) whole wheat couscous
  • 2 oranges, peeled and sliced
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. In a small bowl, combine cumin, cinnamon, cayenne and orange zest. Transfer half to another bowl and stir in yogurt. Pat fish fillets dry; cut into 4 equal portions, if necessary. Place on prepared baking sheet; spread evenly with yogurt mixture. Bake in preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté onion for 3 minutes or until starting to soften. Add garlic and remaining spice mixture; sauté for 2 minutes or until onion is softened. Stir in peas or green beans. Pour in milk; bring to a simmer, stirring often. Stir in couscous. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff couscous with a fork. Spoon onto plates and top with fish and garnish with orange slices.
