Fish stews typically take less time than meat, and this mildly spiced Moroccan dish is a real midweek winner

Ingredients

Wholewheat Couscous, dry

240 g

Olive Oil

1 tablespoons

Courgette

2 medium, finely chopped

Garlic

1 clove(s), thinly sliced

Harissa Paste

1 tablespoons

Tinned Tomatoes

1 can(s), large

King Prawns, Raw

600 g

Coriander, fresh

10 g, finely chopped, plus extra to serve

Lemon Juice, Fresh

1 tablespoons

Pine nuts

1 tablespoons

Instructions

  1. Put the couscous in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Cover and leave to stand.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium-high heat. Fry the courgette and garlic for 3-4 minutes, until the courgette is golden. Add the harissa paste and cook, stirring, for another minute, until fragrant.
  3. Stir in the tomatoes and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, then add the prawns and simmer for 5 minutes more, until the prawns are cooked through and the courgette is tender. Mix in the coriander.
  4. Drizzle the lemon juice over the couscous and season lightly, fluffing up with a fork. Serve the tagine on top of the couscous, with the pine nuts and extra coriander scattered over.

Notes

You can substitute the prawns for 4 x 120g cod fillets, if you like. The SmartPoints® will be Green 8 | Blue 8 | Purple 2.
