Salmon with Toasted Israeli Couscous

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/salmon_couscous.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 2012

You need only one skillet for this meal of wild salmon fillets and Israeli couscous pilaf. For added fiber, look for Israeli couscous made with whole-wheat flour. Serve with roasted carrots and broccoli with cumin.

4 servings, about 4 ounces salmon & 2/3 cup couscous each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add couscous, bell pepper, pistachios, shallot and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until the couscous is lightly toasted, about 5 minutes. Stir in water. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon each parsley and oregano.
  2. Sprinkle salmon with pepper and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place the salmon on top of the couscous, reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and cook until the salmon is cooked through and the water is absorbed, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Serve garnished with herbs, if desired, and lemon wedges.
