Dukkah-Crusted Haddock with Sugar Snap Peas

& Pearl Couscous Salad

Cooking time

30 minutes




560 /serving

Pearled couscous is a tiny toothsome pasta that is versatile enough to be combined with any flavour and texture you throw at it! We give these gems a kick thanks to shallots and crispy sugar snap peas sautéed in butter. We then top the couscous with savoury almond and dukkah-crusted fillets of haddock. Dukkah, an incredible blend of herbs, nuts and spices, does wonders here atop the flaky pan-seared white fish. A dollop of fresh cucumber-yogurt sauce is the ideal finale for this Middle Eastern-inspired treat!

    Cook the couscous
    Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the couscous to the pot of boiling water. Cook, 8 to 9 minutes, or until tender. Thoroughly drain the couscous. Drizzle with olive oil to prevent sticking and toss to combine. Set aside in a warm spot.

    Mise en place
    Peel, halve and thinly slice the shallot. Snap off and discard the stem ends of the sugar snap peas; pull off and discard the tough string that runs the length of each pod. Juice the lemon. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Finely chop the almonds. Grate the cucumber. In a bowl, combine the grated cucumber and yogurt; stir to combine thoroughly and season with S&P to taste.

    Cook the vegetables
    In a large pan (nonstick, if possible), heat a generous drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the shallots, white bottoms of the scallions and ½ the spice blend; season with S&P. Cook, stirring often, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Add the snap peas and 2 tbsp of butter. Cook, stirring, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the butter has melted and the snap peas are bright green. Transfer to the pot of cooked couscous. Wipe out the pan.

    Prepare the haddock
    Place the almonds and remaining spice blend on a plate; mix to combine thoroughly. Pat the haddock fillets dry with paper towel, drizzle one side with a little olive oil and season with S&P on both sides. Coat the oiled side of each fillet in the almond-spice blend mixture, pressing down to adhere. Transfer the coated fillets to a plate.
