Couscous with Seafood Salad and Green Peas

Today, I have prepared for you an extremely versatile and easy recipe that taste like spring and summer.

Couscous can be prepared in so many different ways. In this case, I really felt like using a mixed of Seafood Salad. I always keep a jar in the back of my store cupboard because it comes handy if you want to eat fish but cannot buy it fresh!

In this recipes, the peas and spring onions offer a bright crunch when paired with almonds and seeds. Then, fresh flavours are also accented by a touch of basil and a sprinkle of parsley on top.

This recipe boasts taste, good price and superb health benefits.

A dish that has the potential to become a springtime staple!
