Salmon scores high in protein and heart-saving omega-3 fatty acids. It's so easy to prepare and so good for you. In this dish, it's the star performer teamed up with crisp-tender broccoli and fluffy couscous.
Nonstick cooking spray
4 (1-inch-thick) salmon fillets (about 1 pound)
1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning or freshly ground black pepper
1 to 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 medium orange, halved and very thinly sliced
2 cups small broccoli florets
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
3/4 cup water
1 teaspoon bottled minced roasted garlic or minced garlic
1 cup couscous
- Lightly coat a shallow baking pan with cooking spray; set aside. Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C).
- Season salmon fillets with lemon-pepper seasoning. Arrange fillets in prepared pan. Drizzle with the soy sauce. Top with orange slices. Bake, covered, for 8 to 12 minutes or until fish just flakes easily when tested with a fork.
- Meanwhile, in a 2-quart saucepan bring broccoli, chicken broth, water, and garlic just to boiling. Cook, covered, about 3 minutes or until broccoli is barely crisp-tender. Stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Serve fish over hot cooked couscous and broccoli.
