Braised Mahi Mahi with Couscous Recipe

Everyone benefits from eating more whole grains. Instead of brown rice, try couscous to give you the energy your brain, nervous system and muscles need to run at peak performance. Instead of chicken, go for Mahi Mahi, a tasty protein-rich fish your muscles will thank you for.

1 1/2 cups dry Great Northern beans, picked over, rinsed and drained
6 oz red pearl onions
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp minced garlic
6 oz fresh fennel, julienned
6 oz carrots, julienned
1 1/2 cups Sherry vinegar
12 cups low sodium vegetable broth
6 Mahi Mahi Steaks, 4 oz each
3 cups cooked couscous in vegetable broth

Preparation (Serves 6)
Soak beans in water overnight in refrigerator. Drain and discard excess liquid.

Blanch onions. Drain well. Peel.

In a sauté pan, heat oil. Add garlic, fennel and carrots. Sauté. Deglaze pan with vinegar.

Add beans, onions and broth. Simmer until beans are tender. Strain liquid, reserving liquid and vegetables separately. Transfer liquid and half the vegetable mixture to a food processor or blender. Process until pureed.

Sear each mahi mahi steak in a small pan. Add pureed mixture to cover 3/4 of the steak. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Place 1/2 cup couscous on serving plate. Top with 1 mahi mahi steak and 1 ounce braising liquid. Garnish with 1/2 cup reserved vegetables.
