Quick & Easy Baked Fish with Peas and Couscous

This is a great recipe for busy weeknights. It is simple, quick, and healthy. I used Mahi-Mahi, which is a firmer white fish with mild flavor. You could use any type of white fish you like. You could also tweak the recipe by adding different veggies to the couscous.

  • 1-4 pieces of Mahi-Mahi or other white fish (depending on the number of servings), rinsed with cold water and dabbed with a paper towel
  • 1 box couscous
  • 1 bag frozen peas
  • Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • S/P
  • Olive oil
  • Panko breadcrumbs
  • Butter
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Butter a baking dish large enough to fit your fish pieces. Place your rinsed fish in the dish, spread a dab or two of butter on the fish and season with S/P. Cover all fish with a generous serving of Panko. NOTE: a variation on this recipe – I love this stuff called “Lemonaise” I find in the natural foods dressing section of my grocer. It is a lemony/tarragon flavored mayo that I love with fish. Instead of butter atop the fish, you could use this or something similar for a nice zesty taste!
  3. Place fish in oven and bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Panko should be golden brown and crispy!
  4. During the last 10 minutes of the fish cooking, prepare the couscous and cook the peas. Mix together in a large bowl, season with S/P, olive oil and fresh Parmesan.
  5. Finally, nestle the baked fish atop the couscous salad and enjoy!
