Denhay Moroccan tagine with jeweled couscous

Easy to cook up, certain to impress, this is a lovely and unique way of using our award winning Denhay gammon. The spicy flavours of Morrocco work fantastically with the gammon, and partners perfectly with jeweled couscous to make for a great dinner.

In a large heavy bottom pan/casserole dish, heat the olive oil before adding the chopped onions. Cook for 2 mins then add the crushed garlic. Cook for a further minute.

Whilst cooking, you can ready your couscous. In a pyrex bowl, place the dried couscous and add the remaining clementine juice and the bowling water. Stir and add seasoning to taste. Cover and put to one side for 15mins until the couscous is soft and fluffy.

Remove the cover from the couscous bowl and stir in the pomegranate seeds and flat leaf parsley well.
