Laura’s Fish & Couscous In a Bag Recipe

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

This is probably one of the easiest recipes ever! A super healthy, super fast and super simple lunch – all done and cooked in a bag! Our presenter Laura (from the University of Leicester) shows you how in this video, and here’s her recipe.

FISH & COUSCOUS IN A BAG

Serves: 1
Prep time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 25 mins

Ingredients:
• 1 lemon, grated
• 100g couscous
• 25g pine nuts
• 1 small courgette, thinly sliced
• Dried herbs
• 150ml vegetable stock
• 1 haddock, or other white fish fillet

Method:
1) Preheat the oven to 180C. Fold a large sheet of tin foil in half and tightly fold one side to seal. Mix the couscous, pine nuts, courgette, lemon zest and herbs together – season well.
2) Tip it all into the open ‘bag’. Cut the lemon in half, then cut 2 thin slices from one half. Juice the other half and add the juice to the stock.
3) Lay the haddock on top of the couscous, top with the lemon slices, the carefully pour over the lemony stock. Fold the remaining open sides of foil tightly.
4) Bake for 20-25 mins, depending on how thick your fish is, unit the fish is cooked and the couscous is fluffy. Easy peasy!
