Salmon & Kale Cous Cous

This recipe is perfect for a working woman.

I’m the kind of woman who LOVES hot food. But working on surgery as a doctor means it isn’t always possible to get to a microwave, eat, and get back to work quickly enough as I often find myself having to take a rushed 10 minute working lunch in between jobs.

I love this recipe as I can eat it hot or cold and it still tastes great. Not to mention is freezable!

As always, it’s super easy.

INGREDIENTS

You will need:

 

  • Cous Cous
  • Raisins
  • Salmon
  • Fish stock cube
  • Fresh kale (washed, stalks removed)
  • Chick Peas
  • Sliced lemons

 

You’ll notice I haven’t written amounts – you can pretty much eyeball the quantities of each depending on your preference! Need to up the fibre? Add more kale. Got a little sweet tooth? Throw in an extra handful of raisins. Life is pretty chill, I believe cooking can be too 🙂

Basically, I’m Nigerian and we simply add quantities of spice until we hear the intuition of our ancestors tell us to stop.. anyhoooo

 

WHAT TO DO

  1. Place salmon on some foil and add a few spritz of 1cal spray (or a table spoon of olive oil if you prefer). Add a few peices of lemon and season with some salt and black pepper. Wrap in foil and place it in a pre-heated 190 C oven for 15 -30 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon.
  2. Rinse the kale and remove the hard stalks (they taste bad #leaveit)
  3. Drain the chickpeas and add to the kale
  4. Add a stock cube to some boiling water & dissolve (1-1/2 cups of water per 1 cup of couscous)
  5. Add the couscous to the stock water, cover and let sit for 5 minutes
  6. Add the kale, chickpeas and raisins to the couscous, stir gently then let sit for a further 5 minutes
  7. Serve with Salmon & Enjoy!

 

This meal can be frozen once cooled, and either eaten cold after defrosting in the fridge or re-heated and eaten hot! (Always be sure to check the freezing guidelines of the specific brand of foods you use!)

 

Let me know if you make it! It’s a personal fav of mine.
