How to Make Couscous with Salmon and Zucchini

Looking to impress some friends with a delicious meal? Look no further, this plate of food will knock their socks off with its myriad of flavors. The following Couscous recipe is a twist on several dishes popular in the Basque region of the South of France. The ingredients include onions, bell peppers, zucchini, and salmon (as well as a few other things). So put on your chef hat, apron, and turn on those taste buds - à la cuisine!

Ingredients

The recipe as presented serves approximately four.

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 to 2 onions (depending on taste preferences), thinly sliced
  • 3 to 4 cloves of garlic chopped
  • Piment d'espelette powder to taste (note: this piment can be difficult to find - if unavailable use red chili flakes instead)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 red bell peppers cut into julienne (vertical strips)
  • 2 yellow bell peppers cut into julienne
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1 cup of white wine
  • 1 cup instant couscous
  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 zucchini halved lengthwise and cut in inch (0.6 cm) slices
  • 4 salmon fillets washed and patted dry (can be a one to two pound fillet cut into four slices)
  • Half a lemon (optional)
  • Finely chopped parsley for garnish

Steps

  1. Set up your plates somewhere accessible before you start.This allows you to plate the food right away once it's finished cooking.
  2. Add olive oil to your skillet and preheat.Add the onions and a few pinches of piment, and sauté on medium heat until onions are transparent in color.
  3. Add the garlic, salt and pepper to taste.Sauté for 1 to 2 minutes (be sure to stir every now and then when sautéing ingredients).
  4. Add the bell peppers and simmer on low - medium heat until they become tender and have released their juices.This may take 15 to 30 minutes (give or take) depending on the strength of your stove. Make sure to keep an eye on the vegetables while they simmer, you don't want your onions to burn. Stir as needed.
  5. Add the diced tomatoes and the cup of white wine.Cover and simmer on low heat until tender. Let it simmer for a good 20 to 40 minutes. This allows the white wine to permeate the vegetables and creates a nice flavor.
  6. Approximately ten minutes before the sauce is ready, boil the 1 cup of water and butter in the small saucepan over high heat.While the water is coming to a boil, place the couscous in a bowl.
  7. Directly after the water in the small saucepan has come to a boil, pour over the couscous and stir.Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the couscous has absorbed the water. When the water is absorbed gently fluff the couscous with a fork. While the couscous sits, add the zucchini to the vegetable sauce, and heat 1 - 2 tablespoons of olive over high heat in second skillet.
  8. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper, and drizzle with lemon.Add the fillets to the pan skin side down, and reduced to medium - low heat. Cook the fillets for approximately 7 minutes until cooked 3/4 of the way through. Turn fillets and cook for 3 minutes or until slightly pink in the center.
  9. Start plating your dishes while the salmon is cooking.Begin by serving a portion of couscous on each plate.
  10. Add the sauce over each portion of couscous.Be sure to give each plate an equal amount of sauce and vegetables, but don't drown the couscous in sauce either!
  11. Serve the salmon directly after it's finished cooking.Place each fillet of salmon over the sauce and couscous, and center nicely.
  12. Finish by sprinkling some parsley on top and adding a quick squeeze of lemon.Serve and enjoy!
  13. Finished.

  • Read all of the instructions before you begin cooking; near the end many of the steps occur simultaneously or within minutes of each other (and overlap). You don't want to feel too frazzled, so look in advance and plan accordingly.
  • Be sure to taste your sauce throughout the cooking time! Many people make the mistake of serving without testing their sauce - you don't want to find that it's lacking in salt or pepper while your eating it with your family and friends.
  • Use a timer to help you discern between various steps - that way you are reminded when you need to change the heat, add ingredients, etc.
