17 Days to Christmas- Grilled Salmon with Moroccan Couscous Salad


Remember my love for salmon? Seafood is always a hit in this household. I never like to place lots of seasoning on salmon (Until my visit to Marion bay!!)-prefer to keep it as simple as possible. I prefer it with skin on but I know lots of ppl who prefers it off (smell? texture?hmm..)

The great thing about Salmon is that it keeps you full. I don't know what it is but I find that I feel full quicker having salmon than roast! Odd huh?

This time round, I made a simple couscous salad to accompany the grilled salmon. Dinner in less than 25 minutes!

Grilled Salmon with Moroccan Couscous Salad (Serves 2)
2 pieces of salmon
1 packet of Moroccan Couscous
Boccini cheese (around 6 pieces)
chopped up half a capscium
1 baby egg plant chopped

1) Lightly season salmon with salt, pepper, 1 tsp of chili powder and 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

2) Preheat grill to very hot. Quickly grill vegetables first. Set it aside.

3) Grill salmon on each side for just under 4-5 minutes (I like the middle of the salmon pink).

4) Prepare couscous according to packet instructions. Add grilled vegetables.

5) Serve with salmon!!
