Trout with courgette and cauliflower couscous

Ramona's Cuisine -


On a serving plate scatter the cauli couscous followed by the mixed veggies and courgette topped by the good looking fish. Sprinkle some coriander over and if you like mix 2-3 tbsp of balsamic vinegar with one or more crushed and finely chopped clove(s) of garlic and pour all over the fish. It is delicious if you don't mind the garlic (you shouldn't really as it is really good for you ;-)) but a simple lemon juice is very nice and refreshing too.
Enjoy it!!
