Ever wonder about the best thing of the flaky Orange Roughy? It absorbs the seasonings well and cooks real fast. I decided to cut my filet in small rectangles to serve as a fish tower over a bed of roasted garlic and olive oil couscous, which incidentally, cooks in 5 minutes. You could have a whole dinner ready in 15 to 20 minutes. Impressive right? smile.
