    Dr. Carrie's Note:

    Adapted from Rachel Ray Everyday magazine, November 2006. I'm always looking for new ways to use couscous and easy new ways to cook fish. This looks colorful, fresh and tasty! Will be trying it next week. You can substitute any thin delicate white fish, like red snapper or sole.

      This was a really good dish and an awesome way to use couscous. I did make a couple of changes to the recipe: I didn't have any sun-dried tomatoes on hand, so I substituted 2 diced roma tomatoes. Also, I topped the dish with grated parmesan cheese--very nice!

      A super easy recipe that the kids can help make. It got 2.5 of 4 stars at our house, I even forgot to add the parsley! I would add a bit more salt next time and toast the almonds so that they add a little more flavor. Thanks for posting a new idea for couscous, which, until now, has become pretty bland at our house!
