This was delicious, I made half the recipe tonight for my mother and I. I did use reduced-calorie buttery spread and bulgur instead of couscous and it tasted very nice. The fish wasn't that special though, I'd recommend maybe some cumin or something to jazz it up (I thought of this beforehand but my mother hates cumin!). I would consider making the couscous (bulgur) again, but maybe next time with some spiced shrimp, or alone for a lunchtime salad with olive oil instead of butter.
Grilled Grouper with Browned Butter-Orange Couscous

My husband and I love couscous dishes, but this was absolutely terrible. I followed the instructions to prepare the couscous exactly, and it turned out dry and hard. The flavors were far from exciting, althought it did look very pretty. I will not be making this again.

Couscous was outstanding. We had it with Salmon bc I couldn't I get grouper. When I can find the Grouper, I'll try again.

Outstanding recipe! Grouper wasn't available, so I substituted Halibut. I also pan-seared the fish, (mixing the seasoning with a small amount of Wegmans pan-searing flour before coating) instead of grilling. Unfortunately I didn't have any pomegranate seeds but the parsley and almonds added amazing flavor to the couscous. I will definitely be making this one again!

I have tried to like couscous, but have failed on so many levels. I decided to give it one last try with this recipe... All I can say is OUTSTANDING! Finally something that does not taste like sandy grit! I love this recipe... my new favorite! Instead of using oranges (because i did not have any) I used a small can of mandarin oranges, fabulous! Thanks for teaching me that couscous can be amazing!
