Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 2 tbsp rose harissa (we like Belazu)
  • 800ml vegetable or chicken stock, hot
  • 400g giant couscous
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • Glug of extra-virgin olive oil
  • Handful each of fresh coriander and fresh flatleaf parsley, chopped

Method

  1. Coat the salmon fillets with the rose harissa. Heat a non-stick frying pan on high and sear for 4-5 minutes on each side (skin-side down first) until golden and cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium pan, bring the stock to the boil. Add the couscous and simmer for 6-8 minutes until tender, then drain and put in a serving dish.
  3. Stir in the lemon zest and juice, olive oil, coriander and parsley into the couscous and season. Serve each portion with a salmon fillet on top.

  1. Next time, use 4 chicken breasts instead of salmon, coat with harissa, then fry in a splash of oil for 6 minutes or so on each side until cooked through. Serve with the couscous.
