Salmon With Lemon-Cilantro Vinaigrette December 16, 2013

Another salmon recipe. I like the sauce from this recipe quite a bit. It says to only put it on the top of the salmon but I tossed it with the couscous to give it a bit more flavor and it was a hit. Super quick and simple.


  • 1 10-ounce box couscous (1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 skinless salmon fillet (1 1/4 pounds), cut into 4 portions
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice



Cook the couscous according to the package directions.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Season the salmon with the paprika, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook until opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

In a blender, combine the cilantro, scallions, lemon juice, remaining oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Blend until almost smooth.


Toss  half with the couscous and serve the salmon atop the couscous with the remaining sauce.
