Steam fish on vegetable steamer rack over boiling water until tender. Squeeze 1/4 of a lemon over fish. Chill. Tear into smaller pieces. Meanwhile, bring 1 cup water to a boil and add cous-cous. Stir and cook 2 minutes. Cover, remove from heat and let stand 10-15 minutes, or until all water is absorbed. Turn out into a bowl and fluff with a fork. For dressing: Place all ingredients except poppy seeds in blender and blend well. Add the poppy seeds and blend just until they are distributed throughout the dressing. Add fish and veggies to cous-cous and toss lightly. Add dressing and toss until thoroughly combined.
