Here is a light, delicious cherry couscous and grilled salmon dish for the summer!
Serves 4.


  • 4 (3oz) fillets boneless, skin-on salmon
  • 1 cup of couscous
  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice & 1 teaspoon of lemon zest
  • 1/2 pound of pitted and quartered cherries (about 2 cups)
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup of sliced almonds, toasted


Preparing Salmon:

Grill salmon over medium to high heat with flesh-side down. Flip over and cook through, until the salmon is opaque in the center (about 5 to 7 minutes).

Preparing Couscous

Put couscous, water and lemon juice into a large bowl; cover and set aside for five minutes. Then fluff with a fork and let it sit to cool slightly. After about 5 minutes, add cherries, green onions, and pepper. Garnish with the almonds and serve with the salmon.
