Hi,it is Zoe here and I am back with another recipe! This week I have a Chilli salmon with couscous & harissa yogurt recipe for you guys. It is quick,easy and perfect for the whole family as it is an example of a healthy balanced meal, it has salmon which is a low-iron protein source and has healthy fats,couscous which is a wholegrain that is high in fibre, yogurt which is high incalcium which contributes to bone health and vegetables. It is recommended to have 2 portions of oily fish a week and salmon counts as 1 portion; other types of oil fish include tuna, mackerel and sardines. Salmon is high in omega-3 which contributes to keeping your heart healthy. Other things you can during lockdown that contribute to a healthy heart include exercising for 20-30 minutes a day, reduce salt intake as increased consumption can increase blood pressure, stop smoking and reduce alcohol intake. These small changes can make a positive difference.
Start by washing the salmon fillets with cold water and placing on a baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with honey, chilli flakes, cracked pepper and cook for ~15 minutes at 200°C
While the salmon is cooking oil the kettle and prepare to uncooked couscous in a bowl with the sultanas and a vegetables stock cube. Pour enough boiled water (200ml) to cover the couscous and set aside for ~5 mins
Cook the green beans by boiling them for ~5 mins
Next, mix the harissa paste and the yogurt together
Serve the salmon with the couscous, yogurt, green beans and sprinkle with coriander
