I made this in the middle of the week as despite looking like an adventurous and quite ambitious dish, it is in fact very easy and straightforward one to prepare. It will be ready in no time and trust me you will feel very proud of the outcome. It looks and tastes fantastic!! Just give it a go!
I don't know about you but during the week, I'm trying to cook as healthy and as quick as I possibly can. So, lately, I have been into this cauliflower couscous as is something that is a must eat and if you did not try it yet..... do it now!
Let's put it this way. I and my whole family in fact are not big cauliflower fans but prepared this way it tastes no longer like cauliflower at all!! It is delicious and highly addictive and I now make it at least 2-3 times a week.
✔️ It cooks fast,
✔️ it is carbs free
✔️ it tastes really nice
✔️ so, for me, this ticks all the boxes. ✔️✔️
How to serve this fine cauliflower couscous dish
On a serving plate scatter the cauliflower couscous followed by the mixed veggies and courgette topped by the good looking fish. Sprinkle some coriander over and if you like to mix 2-3 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar with one or more crushed and finely chopped clove(s) of garlic and pour all over the fish. It is delicious if you don't mind the garlic (you shouldn't really as it is really good for you ;-)) but simple lemon juice is very nice and simply refreshing too.
