Florida Snapper With Couscous

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

I adapted this recipe from food reference.com. I start preparing this by slicing the carrots, onion and pepper in one bowl and the snapper and tomatoes in another. This is one of our favorites. I prepare the snapper mixture in my electric fry pan.

We try to eat fish once a week for the health benefits but I have never really enjoyed eating it until tonight! This was a spectacular dish the whole family enjoyed (even my 11 month old ate some fish tonight)! The basil and tomato flavored the fish beautifully. I used a red onion because that's what I had and I had just run out of carrots so I used zucchini instead. I didn't have garlic butter so I just used plain butter and added some minced garlic to the broth. I used whole wheat cous cous as well. I forgot the pepper flakes on accident, but I'm sure the meal would have been even better with them. Thank you for a different and wonderful way to cook fish that I will be using again and again!

Easy,great tasting and stands up well to the fishy taste of Florida snapper. We did add more s&p and basil and served it over wild rice. Thanks 426229Chef
