Mediterranean Salmon Bowl
WITH WILD SALMON SEASONED GRILL
A zippy lemon vinaigrette adds a punch of flavor for this easy weeknight supper. Toast Israeli couscous in olive oil before cooking for a nutty flavor, then toss in cherry tomatoes, briny green olives, and artichoke hearts before topping with lightly charred Wild Salmon Seasoned Grill from Morey’s. This dish is perfect to make as dinner for one with leftovers for lunch the next day!
This recipe was created in collaboration with Feedfeed for the Morey’s Friday Night Cooking Club.
MAKE DRESSING: Blend lemon juice, lemon zest, vinegar, olive oil, kosher salt, black pepper, garlic, and Dijon mustard for 1 minute. Add chopped basil or parsley and blend for 30 seconds more. Refrigerate until ready to use.
COOK FISH: Preheat the oven to 375F degrees Fahrenheit. Line a small baking sheet with aluminum foil and drizzle lightly with olive oil.
Arrange Morey’s Seasoned Grill Salmon fillets on prepared baking sheet and pour remaining marinade over top. Cook according to package instructions. Keep warm until ready to serve.
MAKE COUSCOUS: Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add couscous and stir to coat. Cook until couscous is golden brown and has a nutty aroma, about 5 minutes. Add bay leaf and water or stock, being careful to avoid the sputtering. Increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring often, until couscous is fully cooked and just about all the liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes.
TO SERVE: Prep the other ingredients while couscous cooks. Halve cherry tomatoes. Crush olives with the side of your knife, then tear with your fingers to remove the pits. Halve the artichoke hearts.
Let couscous cool for 5 minutes, then stir in baby spinach, arugula, or kale and about 2 tablespoons of the dressing.
Serve couscous among two bowls. Arrange tomatoes, olives, and artichokes over top and drizzle with more dressing, to taste. Top with salmon fillets and enjoy hot or at room temperature.
