Cook the couscous
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pearled couscous to the pot of boiling water and cook, 8 to 12 minutes, until just tender. Thoroughly drain the couscous. Toss with a drizzle of olive oil to prevent sticking and set aside.

Mise en place
While the couscous cooks, zest and juice the lemon. Thinly slice the radishes. Small dice the tomatoes. Mince the garlic. Pick the basil leaves off the stem. Using a peeler, shave the zucchini into ribbons (or thinly slice into rounds). In a large bowl, combine the zucchini ribbons, ½ the basil (roughly chop before adding), ¼ of the garlic, ⅓ the lemon juice and zest (or as much as you’d like) and 2 tbsp of olive oil; season with S&P to taste.

Cook the fish
In a large pan (nonstick if possible), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Thoroughly pat the cod fillets dry with paper towel; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Add the fillets* to the pan and cook, 3 to 4 minutes per side, until golden brown and cooked through. Carefully transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot.

Make the tomato concassé
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium. Add the remaining garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minutes, until fragrant. Add the tomatoes and ½ the remaining basil (roughly chop before adding). Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, until the tomatoes have softened.

Finish & serve
To the pot of couscous, add the remaining lemon juice and as much of the remaining lemon zest as you’d like; season with the remaining spice blend. Add the radishes to the bowl of zucchini; toss to combine. Divide the couscous between your plates; top with the cooked fish and the tomato concassé. Garnish with a handful of the zucchini ribbon salad and the remaining basil (roughly chop before adding). Serve the remaining salad on the side. Bon appétit!

*Health Canada recommends cooking fish to a minimum internal temperature of 70°C.
