Warm Couscous and Dill Salad

We eat salmon every Monday, and it has become a comforting ritual for the entire family but mostly for me. Meal planning takes the guesswork out of dinner after a long work day and salmon cooks in 15 minutes with my oven method. This adds up to an easy dinner to kick off our crazy work week.

I have so many wonderful things to say about this dinner. If you like mustard and dill, this is the meal for you too! It pulls together in an absolute flash and is almost a one-pot-wonder meal. I utilize one saucepan and a sheet pan covered with foil, making cleanup a breeze.


2 pieces of salmon (8 ounces each)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Olive oil (I like California Ranch EVOO)

1 medium shallot, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons Marsala wine (buy from a liquor store, not the grocery store)

1 cup couscous, pearled (I used a pearled couscous with turmeric)
