Pan Seared Grouper & Pearl Couscous

Kyra Williams


We’re hooked on this flavorful fish dinner. Delicately seasoned grouper is seared to flaky perfection and served with mushroom and asparagus-loaded pearl couscous. Though it’s a meal fit for any high-end restaurant, this well-rounded dish is simple to cook and comes together in less than half an hour. If grouper isn’t available, try swapping it for your favorite white fish.
