Weeknight Quickie

Made a really simple meal from here as we both got home late tonight.   Love these kind of recipes that are so quick to prepare but still tasty AND healthy.

Cashew Salmon with apricot whole wheat cous cous (and some quick steamed green beans on the side)...

Cashew Salmon with Apricot Couscous
From EatingWell Magazine


1/2c nonfat plain yogurt
3 scallions (greens and whites separated)
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 c dried apricots
1 tbsp minced fresh ginger
1 1/4c water
1 c whole wheat cous cous
1 lb of salmon fillet
2 tbsp toasted chopped cashews

1.  Preheat grill to medium-high or position rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler.

2. Combine yogurt, scallion greens, lemon juice, cilantro, cumin, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper and set aside.

3.  Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat.  Add apricots, ginger, scallion whites, and 1/4tsp salt.  Cook, stirring, until softened - about 2min.  Add water and bring to a boil over high heat.  Stir in couscous.  Remove from heat, cover and let stand about 5 min.  Fluff.

4.  Rub salmon with the remaining 1/4 tsp salt and pepper.  If grilling, oil the grill rack.  If broiling, coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.  Grill or broil the salmon until browned and just cooked through- about 3 min per side.  Serve with couscous topped with yogurt sauce and cashews.

Isn't this the quickest recipe?  Let me know how yours turns out!

  1. Will definitely try making this, maybe swapping out the cous cous with quinoa. Yummy! Thanks for the recipe!
