Sweet, caramelized fennel and onion is tossed with Israeli couscous and fresh citrus in this vibrant seafood meal.
This was a nice meal, but not one of my favorites. I had a hard time getting the crust to stick to the fish, so next time, I'd probably use a beaten egg or something to dip the fish into before dipping it in the crust mixture.
I really enjoyed the mix of fruits and veggies in the couscous. The cool sweetness of the oranges was really nice with the caramelized fennel. The leftover couscous (like most things!) was delicious with a fried egg on top.
Just a note – the recipes from Blue Apron call for “1 bunch” of herbs, and that correlates to the size of the “bunch” they send if you’re using their service (which I’m absolutely in love with!). I’d say their bunches are about 1-2 tablespoons.
