  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ⅔ cup whole wheat couscous
  • 1 (14.75 ounce) can salmon, drained, flaked, and skin and bones removed
  • 2 cups packaged fresh baby spinach leaves
  • ½ cup jarred roasted red sweet peppers, drained and chopped
  • ⅓ cup jarred tomato bruschetta topper
  • 2 tablespoons purchased toasted almonds (see Tip)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a 2-quart microwave-safe casserole, combine the water and garlic. Microwave, uncovered, on 100% power (high) for 2- ½ to 3 minutes or until mixture is boiling. Remove from microwave and stir in couscous; spoon salmon atop couscous mixture. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Add spinach, roasted peppers, and bruschetta topper to couscous mixture. Toss to combine. Divide mixture among four serving plates. Top with almonds. Makes 4 servings (1- ¼ cups each).
  • Tip: If you cannot find toasted almonds, you can use untoasted almonds or toast your own. To toast your own, preheat oven to 350°F. Spread whole almonds in a single layer in a pie pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Cool completely before using.
