Preheat the oven to fan 170C/ conventional 190C/ gas 5. Rub the haddock fillets with the spice blend and set aside. Put the couscous into a large heatproof bowl. Pour over 500ml/18fl oz of boiling water and leave to soak for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a frying pan and cook the onion gently for 5 minutes, until it’s soft and golden. Remove from the heat and stir in the pine nuts and sultanas.
Fluff up the couscous with a fork, then add the onion mixture, orange zest and juice, and half the parsley. Stir together thoroughly and season with black pepper. Tip into a roasting tray and level the surface.
Arrange the fish fillets on top of the couscous. Cover loosely with a large piece of foil. Bake for 15-20 minutes, by which time the fish should be cooked – it depends on the thickness of the fillets. To check, the flesh should look opaque and flake easily when prodded with a fork. Serve at once, sprinkled with the remaining parsley.
