Ingredients

  • 320g couscous
  • 400ml freshly boiled water from a kettle
  • 200g spinach
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Finely grated zest and juice 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 5 spring onions, finely sliced
  • Small bunch fresh dill, roughly chopped
  • 3 hot-smoked salmon fillets

Method

  1. Put the couscous into a medium heatproof bowl, then pour over the 400ml boiling water. Briefly stir, then cover the bowl with a plate or cling film and set aside for 5-6 minutes until the couscous has absorbed all the water.
  2. Meanwhile, put the spinach in a large colander in the sink. Boil another kettle full of water, then pour it over the spinach to wilt it. Drain, pressing out as much liquid out as possible with the back of a large spoon.
  3. Combine the olive oil, lemon zest and juice, dijon mustard and garlic in a small bowl, then pour it over the couscous and fluff with a fork. Stir in the spring onions and dill, then transfer to a serving dish. Flake the salmon into large pieces, then gently mix into the salad to serve.
