Lemon baked cod with green beans & pearled couscous

Preheat the oven at 400 degrees.

Start with squeezing of lemons, set the juice to the side and use the rinds to make lemon zest. A grater like the one below should be ideal.

Set aside.


You’ll need 3 to 4 pieces of cod.

1 cup of lemon juice
3 cloves of garlic
2 sheaths of leeks
1 cup of bread crumbs in a shallow pan.


Mince the leeks and garlic.


Add the chopped leeks and garlic to the cod and the lemon juice.

Lightly coat with the bread crumbs.


Add to a pan lightly coated with olive oil.


Top each piece with a spoonful of lemon zest.

Add to the oven uncovered for 20 minutes.


In the interim cut some fresh green beans.
Toss with some olive oil and add the remainder of the chopped leek mixture and place in a shallow plan in the oven.

Remove in 20 minutes.


Add some pearled couscous to the mix and serve it hot.
