Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. In a large bowl, combine the couscous, almonds, sun-dried tomatoes, onion and cumin and season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in the 1/4 cup olive oil and the lemon juice.
  2. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Arrange the tilapia fillets in a single layer in the dish, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cover the fish with the couscous mixture and arrange the lemon slices on top. Pour 2½ cups water around the fish, cover with foil and bake until tender, about 25 minutes. Top with the parsley.

Delicious! Always on the lookout for new ways to serve our favorite fish and this one will go into the regular rotation. Great flavors and so easy. Wouldn't change a thing (although I DID toast the almonds a bit first.) Cut the recipe in half for 2 of us.
