I've been trying to eat more fish, and so when I saw plenty of ideas and instructions in May's issue of Cooking Light I decided I'd try making salmon for myself and the roommate this week. Did you know how easy it is to make salmon? You did? Why didn't you tell me so I could have started making it for myself sooner?
Turns out cooking salmon is super easy and super quick--something tells me I'll be eating a lot more salmon from here on out! The sides I chose from the magazine were also incredibly simple, and incredibly tasty: couscous with pine nuts and roasted chile-garlic broccoli. The couscous has a great richness because it is cooked in chicken broth, and it also has a brightness from chopped fresh parsley. The broccoli is a perfect contrast with the heat of the chile paste, the sweetness of the garlic, and the crunch of the broccoli. What a fabulous, simple meal!
(My dad will be glad to know that I made his requisite couscous joke: "Do you want some broccoli broccoli to go with your couscous?")
