Step 1

*Easy Aioli:*

Mix it up

*Cauliflower Couscous:*

Cut the cauliflower into small chunks (stalk discarded) and place in a food processor. Pulse until it resembles small grains of rice or couscous. Set aside.

Heat ghee in a dutch oven or large pot over medium heat. Add diced onion and cook until translucent, about two minutes.

Add tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Turn heat off and add cauliflower, herbs, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Stir until everything is combined. Place lid on pot and set aside.

*Pan Roasted Red Snapper:*

Heat ghee in a skillet over medium heat. Generously salt and pepper both sides of the filets.

When the pan is very hot carefully add the filets to the pan skin side up. Cook on each side for 3 minutes.

Remove from heat, transfer to a plate and loosely cover with foil to keep warm.

To serve:

Place a generous helping of couscous onto 4 plates. Top with a filet of snapper and then a dollop of aioli.
