Seared Salmon With Israeli Couscous Salad
For a satisfying but light seafood dinner, look no further than this recipe for salmon fillets over a bed of couscous and raw vegetables. You’ll find Israeli couscous, also called pearl couscous, in the grain aisle alongside rice and farro; the individual grains are larger than regular couscous but similar in taste, and often easier for kids to eat with a fork. And we prefer English cucumbers, also known as hothouse or greenhouse, for this recipe, as the smaller, seedless cukes lend a more intense fresh flavor. Depending on the time of year, add tomatoes or herbs, too, if you’d like.
