Under 30: Fish Couscous Parcel

Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 20 mins


If you haven't already guessed it by now, we enjoy making good food, but the easy way and this is one of our favourite dishes to make - simply throw in the ingredients together and shove it in the oven. Simple as.


Using one of the most underrated ingredients out there (in our opinion) couscous, crunchy vegetables, flaky cod and the well balanced marinate of lemon and honey. Bursting with flavour and texture - it's a very hearty but light dinner dish! 


Ingredients:

120g couscous
- 200ml hot fish stock, made with 1/2 fish stock cube
- 2 limes, juiced
- 2 tbsp clear honey
- 1 x 130g pack baby corn, chopped
- 1 red pepper, seeded and finely sliced
- 1 yellow pepper, seeded and finely sliced
- 1 x 280g pack skinless and boneless cod loin, cut into 2cm cubes

Instructions:

1. Put a baking tray in the oven and preheat the oven to 180°C. Put the couscous in a bowl and cover with the hot stock. Set aside for 5 minutes until the stock is absorbed.

2. Meanwhile, mix the lime juice and honey in a small bowl. Lay out 4 x 40cm squares of nonstick baking paper or foil and spoon the couscous into the middle of the squares, then arrange the vegetables and fish on top.

3. Drizzle over the lime-honey mix. Scrunch the parcels together to seal. Put the parcels on the tray and cook for 20 minutes. Transfer each parcel to a plate to serve. Open them carefully, allowing the steam to escape first.

  2. I wish I ate fish! This sounds super tasty :-) Though, I like being vegan but it would have been amazing if I got to choose to be or not. Gosh, I can only imagine how delicious that is!

    1. Oh no! That's a shame but I'm such you could still find a replacement for the fish to have this dish close enough because grilled veg and couscous is still a great dish to have!

  3. Ooooh, this looks delish! My best mate is a huge fish lover but he's incredibly (and I mean INCREDIBLY) lazy when it comes to actually cooking, so this looks like an ideal post to send to him! Boiling the kettle for the stock, followed by putting everything into a tin foil parcel and then straight into the oven sounds about the right kind of effort level for him haha! Looks delicious as always!
