Breaded harissa cod with lemon and red onion couscous


1 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion
2 Madras Rubbed Spicy Smoked Garlic cloves
4 tsp harissa paste
4 sustainably sourced frozen cod (or other white fish) fillets, defrosted
40g dried breadcrumbs
1 lemon
250g couscous
400ml hot chicken stock
Bunch fresh flatleaf parsley


01.Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Slice the onion, then fry for 5 minutes or until softened but not coloured. Finely chop the Madras Rubbed Spicy Smoked Garlic, then add to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Season and set aside.

02.Meanwhile, heat the grill to medium. Spread the harissa paste on top of the fish, then sprinkle over the breadcrumbs. Finely zest the lemon, then sprinkle over the fish. Grill for 10-12 minutes until the fish is just cooked – the flesh should be opaque. If the breadcrumbs brown too soon, move the fish lower in the grill.

03.While the fish is cooking, put the couscous in a bowl, pour over the hot stock and cover with cling film. Leave for 5-10 minutes to absorb, then fluff with a fork.

04.Roughly chop the parsley and juice the lemon, then stir through the couscous with the fried onion and garlic. Taste, season and serve in bowls, topped with the fish.
