Ingredients

  • 1 cup Israeli couscous
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets (each 115 g)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup cored peeled mango
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

Method

In saucepan, cook couscous according to package instructions. In large bowl, combine green onions, chives, butter and 1/8 tsp each of the salt and pepper; stir in couscous until butter is melted. Keep warm.

While couscous is cooking, sprinkle salmon with 1/4 tsp each of the salt and pepper. In nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook salmon, turning once, until fish flakes easily when tested, about 8 minutes.

In small bowl, stir together mango, red onion, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice, cayenne pepper and remaining salt and pepper.

Serve salmon over couscous and top with mango mixture.
