The Sicilian cuisine has been influenced by the many cultures. Couscous is a traditional moroccan dish; in Sicily it is prepared with fish and it’s soooooo Good :D.



300 g of couscous
250 grams of redfish
1 onion and 1 clove of garlic
6 large shrimps
300 grams of tomato pulp
400 grams of mullet
1 celery
1 bay leaf
1 sprig of fresh parsley 
1 or 2 spoons virgin olive oil



Wash, gut  and remove the central bone and head of the fish. Prepare a brot with the fish scraps, the mussels, the peeled onion, the celery and the laurel. Cover with water and cook for about 1 hour. At the end filter the broth and cut the fish in slices.

In a saucepan, add a bit of oil and cook the chopped garlic, the parsley and the shrimps. Add the tomato sauce and cook with salt and pepper for 10 minutes. Add the fish and the saffron and cook it for about 15 minutes.

Prepare the cous cous and cook it in a pan covered with the fish broth.  Cover it an let it sit for 10 minutes.
