Serves 5

My kids kind of get bored of quinoa so as no one is gluten free in our house, I thought I would try couscous... Turned out a huge success!! I think it is good to mix things up in the kitchen.


  • 5 small salmon filets
  • 1 pack of organic of couscous
  • 2 tbsp of grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced or grated
  • 2 tbsp of maple syrup
  • 2 cups of sliced sugar snap peas
  • 4 scallions, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper


Combine the maple syrup, ginger, garlic and soy sauce and pour over the salmon. Make sure it is well coated and leave it to rest for 15-20 minutes at least.

Meanwhile cook the couscous to packaging instructions and prep the veggies.

Sear the salmon for 2-3 minutes on each side (depending on the thickness of the salmon you may want to leave it a bit longer or not). Reserve the sauce from the marinade to pour over the dish later.

Plate the couscous with the sugar snap peas and top with the salmon and a drizzle of the sauce.

This would be really good also with english peas.
