Salmon & Couscous Salad


For the Salmon:

  • 2x 4 oz. (115g) pieces of salmon
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • Sea salt and pepper

For the Salad:

  • 2 cups (150g) iceberg lettuce, chopped
  • 1 cup (157g) couscous, cooked
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. feta cheese

For the Dressing:

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp. Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp. maple syrup or honey (optional)
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 400F (200C). Rub the salmon with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

 Place salmon skin-side down on a baking tray, and pour the lemon juice over the top. Roast for 10-12 minutes, until cooked thoroughly.

 In the meantime, make the dressing by whisking together all the ingredients listed.

 Prepare the salad by dividing the iceberg lettuce between bowls, top with cooked couscous, red onion, tomatoes, and feta cheese.

 Once salmon is cooked, remove from oven and place on top of the salad. Drizzle with dressing and serve.
