Fijian Style Coconut Fish with Couscous

Updated: Oct 26, 2020

This absolutely delicious meal was introduced to me by a friend who traveled to Fiji several

years ago and hasn't forgotten about the delicious foods she tried during her visit. I was skeptical about trying it because it looked too simple and plain and she served it with Cassava (which is my least favourite tuber) I however decided to try it with rice and oh my! I'm so glad I did!

It is typically served with Cassava or Cocoyam. I decided to serve it with couscous the next time I tried it and it was just as delicious.

Here's the Recipe for all the components of the meal.
