- 12 scallions, chopped
- 2 cup packed fresh cilantro
- 1 cup packed fresh mint
- 6 Tablespoons olive oil
- 2 Tablespoon chopped, peeled fresh ginger
- 1 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 zucchini, cut into spears
- 8 skinless fillets firm white fish
- 2 cup dry whole-wheat couscous
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Throw the scallions, cilantro, mint, oil, ginger, coriander and 1/2 teaspoon salt into a food processor and pulse until a coarse paste forms. Season with pepper.
Toss zucchini with 3 tablespoons herb paste in a bowl. Spread onto a rimmed baking sheet. Roast for 5 minutes.
Rub remaining herb paste onto both sides of fish fillets. Push zucchini to edges of baking sheet, and arrange fish in center, leaving about 1/2 inch between each fillet.
Roast until fish is opaque and semi-firm to the touch, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare couscous.
Serve fish and zucchini over couscous.
