Salmon and Couscous

This is a totally old school Jamie Oliver that we made the other week – its so super simple and doesn’t require many ingredients at all! I really recommend it it’s a really easy and fresh dinner! You can get the link for the original recipe here.

Ingredients – Serves 1 – double/triple etc. up depending on number of people you are serving!

75 g couscous

1 small courgette – for more than one person I just used 1 large courgette. 

1 handful of asparagus

1 fresh red chilli

2 ripe tomatoes

a few sprigs of fresh coriander

1 x 120 g salmon fillet – I used frozen salmon so have changed the recipe slightly!

extra virgin olive oil

½ a lemon

1 tablespoon fat-free natural yoghurt


Cook the salmon fillet in the oven at 170 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes if fresh and 40 if frozen!

After 5 or 25 minutes (fresh v frozen) begin the following:

Pop the couscous into a bowl, cover with boiling water, put a plate on top and leave for 10 minutes to do its thing.

Slice the courgette into batons, snap the woody ends from the asparagus and deseed and finely chop the chilli.

Roughly chop the tomatoes, then pick and roughly chop the coriander leaves, discarding the stalks.

Heat a small non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, add the courgette and chilli. Cook for 2-5 minutes and then add the asparagus for a further 5 minutes.

Stir the tomatoes, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of oil and the chopped coriander into the couscous, then season to taste with salt and black pepper.

To serve, pop the couscous mixture onto a plate, add the salmon, tumble on the veg mix and finish with a dollop on some yogurt.

Pretty darn tasty, super fresh AND very quick to make which is always a plus!

Love A, x
