How to Make Steamed Flounder with Vegetable Couscous
- 1In a 2 quart, shallow microwave-safe dish, combine couscous, bell pepper, zucchini, green onion, oregano, 1 TBL oil and 1/2 C water (I used chicken broth). Season with salt and pepper. Cover, and microwave on high until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Stir mixture.
- 2Dividing evenly, spread 1TBL Dijon over one side of fish; season with salt and pepper. Roll up each fillet, and place on top of couscous. Cover, and microwave on high until fish is almost cooked through, about 4 minutes. Let stand, covered, 5 minutes to finish cooking. (If the fish is not opaque at this point, as mine wasn't, just put it back in the microwave for 2 more minutes and let rest again. Don't overcook to the point of rubbery fish! You want it to be cooked, but moist and tender).
