Couscous is a wee little pasta made of semolina flour and if you’re not cooking it on weeknights you’re missing out. It cooks in seconds and offers a blank canvas for any culinary creation. In this recipe, we amp up the couscous with pickled peppers, pistachios, and crunchy snap peas. We pair it with gorgeous filets of wild salmon, coated in curry, and sauteed in a sticky sweet glaze. We hope our creative combination of flavors and textures in this dish will inspire you to see what you can create with couscous in your kitchen.


  • pickled peppers in oil (2 tablespoons oil and ½ cup peppers)
  • 4 filets salmon
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 Orange
  • 1/4 cup pistachios (or any nut you have in the pantry)
  • 1 cup couscous
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • salt (staples)
  • yogurt (nice-to-have)
  • mint (nice-to-have)
  • Did you make this?

    Delicious, was worried it would be too sweet but the curry balanced with the honey and orange beautifully.
