  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 zucchini thinly sliced
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 cup couscous
  • 3/4 cups tomato juice
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil (or 1/4 tsp/1 mL dried)
  • 4 sole fillets
  • 4 haddock fillets
  • 1 sweet red pepper chopped
  • 1 yellow pepper chopped
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 4 teaspoons butter

Method

Cut 4 pieces of heavy-duty or double- thickness foil 15 inches (38 cm) long. Onto centre of each, slightly overlap zucchini slices; top with onion and garlic. Top each with 1/4 cup (50 mL) couscous. Gather foil sides up into bowl shape.

In measuring cup, combine tomato juice, 1/2 cup (125 mL) water, half of the salt and the pepper; drizzle evenly over couscous. Sprinkle with basil. Top each with fish fillet; sprinkle with red pepper and remaining salt. Dot each with 1 tsp (5 mL) butter. Seal foil, leaving room in package for steam.

Place packets, seam side up, on grill over medium heat; close lid and cook until fish flakes easily when tested, about 15 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes or until couscous has absorbed all liquid.
