Sophisticated Salmon Supper for $4 per Person!
Think it's too expensive to have gourmet, fresh, and heathly salmon for supper for a family of four? Think again! This recipe is delicious, feels fancy, and only takes about 25 minutes from start to finish! The added bonus is that it's healthy and costs only about $4 per person. I adapted a recipe for Salmon and couscous from Bobby Deen (Paula's son) and made it healthier. Enjoy!
Salmon and Confetti Couscous
4 (4-ounce) pieces salmon (skin removed)
salt, pepper, and garlic powder
1 box Near East brand Whole-grain Wheat Couscous, Roasted Garlic and Olive Oil Flavor
1 box grape tomatoes, sliced in half
1 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
1 bunch green onions (green parts only, about 1 cup)
1 12oz. bag frozen broccoli that can be steamed in microwave
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Add a drizzle of olive oil to glass pan and place the salmon. Squeeze the juice of 1 lime over the top of the salmon and sprinkle to taste with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cover with foil and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve on a bed of the confetti couscous (see below).
Prepare couscous according to package directions. Meanwhile steam broccoli in microwave according to package directions. Add steamed broccoli, tomatoes, crumbled feta, and green onions to couscous.
