Steph’s Pan Fried Sea Bass and Couscous

You know that moment after a long day at the office and then a post work gym session, and all you want is to have something cheap and healthy but also quick and filling – Well, look no further, this is the perfect recipe for this moment.


Ingredients (serves two):

  • 2 fillets of sea bass
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 bag of cherry tomatoes
  • couscous
  • Parsley
  • 1 red onion (optional)
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

How to:

  1. Pour couscous into a bowl
  2. Pour boiling hot water into the bowl until it is 1 inch higher than the couscous
  3. Leave to stand with a cover over it
  4. Then cut up the cucumber into slices and then quarters
  5. Cut the cherry tomatoes into quarters
  6. Dice the red onion (if you are like me and don’t like raw onions then just leave this part out)
  7. Chop the parsley
  8. Now the couscous should be cooked and slightly warm, so put all the cucumber, tomatoes, onions and parsley into the bowl and mix it all in
  9. Add a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper (to taste) and mix
  10. Then leave on the side and start on the pan fried sea bass
  11. Pour olive oil (or rapeseed oil if you have some) into a pan and heat then pan fry the sea bass until the skin is slightly crisp and it is cooked through
  12. And serve!
