Salmon with Toasted Israeli Couscous
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.Advertisement
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.
Serve garnished with herbs, if desired, and lemon wedges.
Tip: Look for Israeli couscous (sometimes called “pearl couscous” because of its larger granules) near other couscous or pasta in well-stocked supermarkets.
