      Easy and delicious. It was the first time that I've had trout filled with couscous. The peppermint added a fresh taste and supported the flavors of the trout. I like this recipe, because it brings out all the delicate flavors of the trout. No ingredient is dominating, all well-balanced. If you like fish, you sure will like this unique fish recipe.

      We had 4 small giltheads that we prepared as described, They turned out delicious, ready and we loved the mint with it.
      I prepared more couscous as the children will need this tomorrow for lunch in the school.
      The only thing I would change is to roast the almonds in advance and mix them with the couscous as we do not eat the skin of the fish. We simply ate the almonds before we discarded the skin. But on the other hand this looks more beautiful!
      Thanks a lot for this easy and delicious recipe!
