Mariella's Tip

You can use this base of this dish for most one pan wonders - 300g couscous, 250ml cream, 300ml water and any flavourings like harissa, basil pesto etc you choose.

Step 1 - One Pan Cajun and Pesto Fish Bake

Season your basa fillets with olive oil, cajun spice and pepper. Mix your couscous, courgette, peas, cream, water, vegetable stock, sundried tomato pesto and half of your lemon juice in an ovenproof baking dish. Top with your seasoned basa fillets and pop into the oven for 18-20 minutes.

To Serve
