For this Mediterranean-inspired dish, we roast whole grape tomatoes until busting, then mash them to release their juices and stir into Israeli couscous. Meanwhile, flounder fillets are rubbed with olive oil, topped with sliced garlic, and roasted until flaky. It's all served with a simple salad of cucumber, Kalamata olive, and oregano for brightness and crisp texture.
