Couscous salad

  • Cook the couscous according to the packet instructions.

  • Add the butter, and use a fork to break up the couscous a little.

  • Add the frozen peas while the couscous is still warm. Allow to stand until the peas are warmed through.

  • Slice the red onion into thin strips, and tear the lettuce into smaller pieces. Toss the red onion and salad with the couscous.

  • Season with salt and pepper to taste, and stir in a little good quality olive oil.

Serve the baked salmon with couscous salad and lime wedges.

Tip: Norwegian salmon is delicious if it is not completely cooked through - it should preferably still be a little raw in the middle when you take it out of the oven.
