  1. Step 1

    Cook the bulgur following pack instructions, then rinse and drain well before tipping into a large bowl. Add the cucumber, tomatoes, olives and most of the parsley. Season well. Combine the harissa, honey, garlic, lemon juice, half the oil and 1 tbsp water in a bowl, then set aside.
  2. Step 2

    Heat the remaining oil in a non-stick pan over a medium heat and cook the red onion for 4-5 mins until softened and lightly browned. Season the fish well, then add to the pan and cook for 3 mins before pouring in the harissa mixture. Turn the fish and cook for 2-4 mins more (depending on the thickness of the fish), basting the fish in the pan juices until cooked through – the flesh should be opaque.
  3. Step 3

    Divide the bulgur salad between two plates, top with the fish and fried onions, then drizzle over any remaining pan juices and sprinkle over the remaining parsley to serve.
