Pan Fried Seabass Fillet With Salsa Sauce and Couscous

READY IN: 25mins




  • Score the skin of seabass with knife, season the fillets generously with salt and pepper. Put it aside.
  • Mix chopped tomatoes, capers, olives, olive oil and basil leaves in a bowl, and add the balsamic vinegar and lime juice and add grounded black pepper and sea salt. Adjust the seasoning to your liking.
  • In a separate bowl, add couscous, and then add the chicken stock. Cover with a plate, and leave for 5-7 minutes or until the liquid are all absorbed by the couscous. Fluff the couscous up with a fork. Mix the couscous with some of the tomato sauce, and dish onto a warm plate.
  • While the couscous is being cooked, heat a non-stick frying pan on a medium heat. Add olive oil, when the oil is hot, put the seabass fillet in the pan, skin side down. Press the fillet down with a spatula, so the fish fillets do not curl up. Fry the fillet for 4 minutes until the skin is crispy. Turn the fish over carefully so it does not break up. Fry for a further 2 minutes, and turn off the heat.
  • Lay the fish on top of the couscous, drizzle with some of the tomato sauce, and serve immediately.
