Honey Salmon with Snappy Couscous

Add to Meal Planner


Couscous is a wee little pasta made of semolina flour and if you’re not cooking it on weeknights you’re missing out. It cooks in seconds and offers a blank canvas for any culinary creation. In this recipe, we amp up the couscous with pickled peppers, pistachios, and crunchy snap peas. We pair it with gorgeous filets of wild salmon, coated in curry, and sauteed in a sticky sweet glaze. We hope our creative combination of flavors and textures in this dish will inspire you to see what you can create with couscous in your kitchen.


  • pickled peppers in oil (2 tablespoons oil and ½ cup peppers)
  • 4 filets salmon
  • 1 Tbsp. curry powder
  • 1 Orange
  • 1/4 cup pistachios (or any nut you have in the pantry)
  • 1 cup couscous
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • salt (staples)
  • yogurt (nice-to-have)
  • mint (nice-to-have)
  • Did you make this?

    1. equipment: large pan for salmon, grater or microplane
    2. Place your large pan over medium/high heat. Drizzle the pickled pepper oil in the pan. Season the salmon filets with curry powder and salt. Add your salmon filets to the pan, seasoned side down, away from you. Now season the second side with curry powder and salt and let cook. Get some water boiling for your couscous, about 2 cups.
    3. Meanwhile, zest the orange, then cut it in half and set aside. Roughly chop the pistachios and pickled peppers and set aside.

    So good. The only thing is that couscous is not as simple as putting boiling water, at least not in my case. Keep that in mind.

    Not great. Salmon turned out perfectly cooked, but the glaze was a little overly sweet and the couscous was bland.
