Serves 4
    1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 x 200g boneless fish fillets (eg ling or snapper)
  • Olive oil spray
  • Lemon wedges, to serve
  • *Couscous salad:*
  • 1/2 cup couscous

Combine the turmeric, cumin, coriander, garlic, oil, rind and juice in

mixture. Cover and refrigerate for up to 30 minutes, but no longer.

For the couscous salad, place the couscous in a heatproof bowl. Pour over 1/2

couscous has absorbed the water. Fluff grains with a fork. Place the

pepper and toss well to combine.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan or barbecue flat-plate on medium heat.

side, depending on thickness of fillets, until golden and cooked through.

Spoon the couscous salad onto serving plates and top with fish. Serve with
lemon.
