Salmon Couscous Suppper

If you remember in the previous post, I made 2 grilled salmon fillets. The reason I did that was so I could make this quick leftover meal the next day.

It is simple and pretty low in fat. You will need some couscous, soy sauce, brocolli, carrot, garlic and the leftover fish. This would be good with leftover white fish too, or some marinated tofu if you wanted to go vegetarian. The recipe also calls for mushrooms but I just didn't have any.

Cook the couscous per the package instructions (pour boiling water over it and cover for five minutes in most cases)

I don't bother with a steamer, I just put the veggies in a pan with a little water and pop the lid on, it works just as well.

While it steams, chop up your garlic.

Chop up your fish.

Once it is crisp tender remove it and set aside.

Saute the garlic in a little peanut oil or whatever oil you like. The recipe calls for cooking spray but I am not a fan of that.

Once the garlic cooked for a couple of minutes, add in the veggies and cook those for a couple of more minutes.

Toss in the salmon, couscous and soy sauce and warm everything through. You are ready to eat!!

I love simple dishes like this for weekdays. It is filling and fast so you can get on with enjoying your evening.


  1. YUM!
    That looks like a great weeknight meal. I'll have to save this one.

  2. You actually made salmon look good to me! :)
    I made your Somen Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce last night - OMG, was it delicious! Actually, I made a ton of it, because I knew we'd both like it and I wanted to have it as left-overs, too. LOVE it. Gave it 5 stars and will make it again SOON!

  3. Wow! This looks fabulous. As usual, thanks for sharing.

  4. Wow that was a lot of garlic! Looks super easy and fresh...

  5. well done. I've done a similar with chicken and jasmine rice. Predictable but also good.

  6. i mean mine was predictable by the way.
