Recipe Ingredients for Fish - Salmon with Cashews & Apricot Couscous

1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
3 scallions, sliced, greens and whites separated
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 1/4 cups water
1 cup whole-wheat couscous
500 grams salmon fillet (preferably wild Pacific, skinned and cut into 4 portions)
2 tablespoons cashews (chopped, toasted) (see Note)

Recipe Directions for Fish - Salmon with Cashews & Apricot Couscous

  1. # Preheat grill to medium-high or position rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler.

  2. Combine yogurt, scallion greens, lemon juice, cilantro, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Set aside.

  3. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add apricots, ginger, the scallion whites and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add water and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in couscous. Remove from heat, cover and let stand until the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

  4. Meanwhile, rub salmon with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. If grilling, oil the grill rack (see Tip). If broiling, coat a broiler pan with cooking spray. Grill or broil the salmon until browned and just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Serve with the couscous, topped with the yogurt sauce and cashews.
