Salmon and Couscous



I really should try to eat more fish. And so should probably most of us. This is a really simple recipe from - again - Jamie Oliver's Jamie's Dinners, which is probably his most useful cookbook ever. We switched things around a bit, but essentially, it's the same recipe. And it was absolutely delicious.

Salmon and Couscous
serves 2

200 g couscous
boiling water
2 salmon fillets
olive oil
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 small zucchini, sliced into sticks
1 red chili, finely chopped
handful cherry tomatoes, halved
juice of a lemon
fresh coriander, chopped
crème fraîche, to serve

Put the couscous in a large bowl and cover with boiling water. Set aside. Drizzle the salmon fillets with olive oil, and rub in salt and pepper. Fry in a non-stick pan, and add the zucchini and chili. Mix the tomatoes, lemon juice and coriander into the couscous, and add a little bit of olive oil. Season to taste. Remove the salmon to plates, and add the veggies in the pan to the couscous, and mix.

To serve, place prettily on a plate, and top with a dollop of crème fraîche.

Looks yummy. I really love fish, but like you, I don't cook it as much as I should.
