Moroccan Mackerel and Citrus CouscousA cous cous salad full or Moroccan sweet and spicy flavours that pair perfectly with the oily mackerel.
Toss the cous cous with the ground ginger, ground coriander and salt. Pour over the stock, cover and allow to steep.
Cut the broccoli into small chunks, either steam or boil for a few mins until cooked but still with a little bite. To maintain the vibrant green of broccoli when boiling, make sure its tipped into boiling water, not cold.
Once the couscous has soaked up all the stock, fluff with a fork and add the garlic, chilli, red onion, orange juice and zest and olive oil.
Once the broccoli is cooked, drain and add to the cous cous with the smoked mackerel, parsley and flaked almonds. Stir well and taste, you may need a little more orange juice or olive oil to lubricate, it should be zinging with flavour.
Pile onto a plate to serve and top with some parsley, flaked almonds and extra orange zest.
