Healthy recipe - Grilled basa with couscous salad

Want to cook a fancy meal that's healthy too? Try this recipe!

I am not a big fan of seafood. I know seafood is extremely healthy and in fact must be chosen over meat for its high protein content, but I haven t been able to move over prawns or basa. Ddi you know, eating fish can also help beat depression? For seafood lovers, basa may not even technically fall in the category of fish but I like it because it does not have the fishy smell or any bones, making it easy for people like me who can t pick bones from a fillet. So I tried this recipe and it turned out to be a fancy one.
