Red Snapper, Couscous and Broccoli

The time has come to cook that lovely Red Snapper I purchased over the weekend.

I asked the fishmonger to clean it for me and he actually decapitated it too which made it easier to handle without it staring at me, but made it lose that je ne sais quios whole look!

I decided to make a nice concoction of garlic, onions, cilantro, red pepper flakes, lemon juice, and sesame oil. I cut a few  deep slices on each side of the fish, seasoned it with salt and pepper and then proceeded to stuff each cut with my concoction.

Preheated my oven to 425 Deg F and let the fish roast for aprox 30 minutes.

In the meantime I quickly prepared some garlic and olive oil couscous……

And tied it all up with some handy dandy microwavable steamed broccoli. Love those steam in a bag last minute saviors!

Hubby got back from work late but walked in just as I was taking the fish out of the oven.

Fish was really tasty, flaky and moist and paired wonderfully with the couscous and broccoli. Happy Monday everyone!
