  • 1 navel orange
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 cup(s) couscous
  • 4 small (1 1/2 pounds total) tilapia filets, quartered
  • 2 tablespoon(s) no-salt Cajun, Creole, or blackening seasoning
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil



Step 1

Heat broiler. Line a broiler-proof rimmed baking sheet with foil. Using a vegetable peeler, remove 2 strips of zest each from the orange and lemon; very thinly slice the zest and place in a medium bowl. Add the couscous and 1 cup warm tap water, cover and let sit for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut the orange in half. Cut half the orange into 4 wedges; set aside. Squeeze the juice of the remaining half and the juice of the lemon into a small bowl.

Brush each side of the fish with the juice mixture, sprinkle with the seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon salt, and place on the prepared pan. Broil until opaque throughout, 1 to 2 minutes per side.

Fluff the couscous with a fork and fold in the scallions, oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Serve with the fish and orange wedges.
