Moist, succulent salmon is placed atop a bed of light, flavorful couscous, and then crowned with a dollop of sour cream-dill dressing. If you prefer a creamy honey-mustard dressing, simply mix 2 Tbsp of Dijon-style mustard and 1 tsp of honey with the sour cream.

Recipe Ingredients for salmon with couscous

1/2 cup finely diced red bell pepper
4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
1 cup couscous
1/2 cup nonfat sour cream
2 cups vegetable broth, reduced sodium
1/2 cup finely diced onion
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp dried dill

Recipe Directions for salmon with couscous

  1. Place the broth, onion, bell pepper, and parsley in a 4-quart pot, and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the salmon fillets, cover, and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 5 to 8 minutes, or until the fish can be easily flaked with a fork.

  2. Transfer the fish to a plate, and cover to keep warm.

  3. Bring the poaching liquid to a second boil over high heat, and stir in the peas and couscous. Cover and remove from the heat. Let sit for 5 minutes.

  4. Place the sour cream and dill in a small bowl, and stir to mix well. Set aside.

  5. Divide the cooked couscous among individual plates. Top each portion with a salmon fillet and a dollop of dill dressing, and serve immediately.
