Treat your family to a fresh, traditional North African meal starring fish and couscous in just 35 minutes. Blend a Moroccan-inspired spice mix together, using pure McCormick® cinnamon, cumin and turmeric to season both the tilapia and couscous. Cook fish until flaky and add sweetness and texture to fluffed couscous with dried apricots and dates.
For the couscous, mix spices and salt in small bowl. Set aside. Mix 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of the oil, honey and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the spice mixture in large bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Set aside.
Bring water to boil in medium saucepan on high heat. Stir in couscous, apricots and dates. Cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork. Spoon couscous into bowl with lemon juice vinaigrette; toss to coat well. Set aside.
For the fish, heat another 1 tablespoon of the oil in large skillet on medium heat. Brush fish with remaining 1 tablespoon oil; season with remaining spice mixture. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side or until fish flakes easily with fork. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Serve fish with spiced couscous.
