Harissa salmon and herby couscous

By Sophie E on 17th Jul, 2014

Harissa salmon and herby couscous


  1. Preheat a fan oven to 180 deg C.
  2. Thoroughly mix the ground coriander, harissa, lemon zest and half the lemon juice in the bottom of a large bowl.
  3. Gently score the salmon fillets and place them in the bowl and cover them in the marinade. Leave for at least half an hour.
  4. Place salmon on baking tray and cook in the oven for 10 minutes.
  5. Place your couscous in a heatproof bowl. Pour in enough freshly boiled water as per the instructions on your couscous packet, stir, cover and leave for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the olive oil, remaining lemon juice and most of the fresh chopped herbs (leaving a few herbs for the garnish), season with salt and pepper and mix well.
  7. Create a bed of spinach leaves onto which to put your herby couscous on each plate.
  8. Lay your salmon on top of the couscous (I gently flaked mine).
  9. Garnish with leftover fresh herbs and lemon wedge.
  10. Serve immediately, with a green vegetable like broccoli.
