Remove from oven and decorate with coriander leaves (or parsley).
Serve with Couscous or if you prefer, boiled rice.
Couscous is easy to prepare. Simply empty couscous into bowel, add boiling water to cover and leave until water is absorbed. Stir, add lemon juice, salt and pepper.
This would go down very well with a glass of wine or, if you prefer, beer.
