Lazy Salmon Supper
Serve a tasty and healthy meal with salmon rich with omega-3 fatty acids and a side of couscous.
- 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
- 4 scallions, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 1/2 cups couscous
- Salt and pepper
- About 1/4 cup dill, finely chopped
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), for drizzling
- 4 6-8-ounce salmon fillets
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin (about 1/2 palmful)
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander (about 1/2 palmful)
- 1 cup Greek-style yogurt
In a medium size saucepan, bring the chicken stock, scallions, garlic and butter to a boil. Stir in the couscous and season with salt, pepper, dill and lemon juice. Turn off the heat, cover the pot and let stand for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.
Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of EVOO in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season the salmon with the cumin, coriander, salt and pepper. Add to the skillet and cook the fish for 2 minutes on each side for medium-rare doneness (for fish that is opaque and cooked through, add a minute on each side).
Serve the fish with the couscous alongside and a generous dollop of yogurt on top.
