For Fish: (4 servings)

Pour ½ cup warm water over raisins and set aside to plump. Slice onions. In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain raisins, and add to onions with vinegar and the grated zests. Cook 1 minute. Add 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.

Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper and spread onion mixture on top.

Bake until fish is cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with pine nuts just before serving. Work Time: 30 minutes Total Time: 40 minutes

For Couscous:* (4 servings) Put the couscous in a 9" square baking dish about 2" deep. In a saucepan, combine the butter, salt, cinnamon and 1½ cup water and bring to a boil over high heat. Pour over the couscous and stir once to combine. Cover with foil and let stand 10 minutes. Uncover and fluff the couscous with a fork before serving.

*You won't get the best results from following the instructions on the box. This is an even simpler method for making couscous with just a touch of cinnamon.
