Glenda's Lemon-Cilantro Salmon with Couscous

Print Friendly and PDF
Absolutely delicious!  This recipe comes from my friend, Glenda Stephens of San Diego (recipe from RealSimple.com).  It has such fresh flavors of lemon and cilantro in a light vinaigrette. Be sure to serve it over couscous which absorbs that wonderful vinaigrette and salmon juices.  It was so good. We could not stop eating it.

Ingredients:
1, 10-oz box couscous (1-1/2 cups)
3 T olive oil
1 salmon fillet (1-1/4 lbs)
1/2 tsp paprika
Kosher salt
Black pepper
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
4 green onions, sliced thin
2 T fresh lemon juice

Cook the couscous according to package directions. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1T oil.  Season the salmon with paprika, 1/2 tsp. kosher salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.  Cook the salmon until opaque about 3-4 min. per side.  In a small bowl, combine the cilantro, green onions, lemon juice and 2T oil with 1/4 tsp salt and pepper.  Drizzle over the salmon and couscous.
