Seared Greek Salmon With Couscous
Seared Greek salmon with couscous topped with a Greek olive, tomato, and white wine sauce. Delicious dinner for any night of the week!
I’ve been rolling out so many holiday themed dishes here in our Sumptuous Living Kitchen. Add that to all the cooking for culinary appearances that my kids, my hubs, and myself, for that matter, are starved for something different! Healthy Greek Salmon With Couscous.
Flaky fish seared with a crispy crust and topped with beautiful Greek sauce. Kalamata olives stewed with fire roasted tomatoes, garlic, onions, and white wine. Served over a mound of whole wheat pearl couscous, there is nothing holiday themed about this incredible Greek Salmon With Couscous. However, it might be the most brilliant thing to serve the night before the big event…and we both know how smart you are!
In a skillet with a bit of olive oil, sautee sweet onions until tender. Add in pitted kalamata olives & garlic.
Deglaze the pan with white wine, then maybe pour yourself a glass… might as well, right?
Work up all the yummy little brown bits of goodness off the bottom of the pan.
Add in fire roasted tomatoes & seasonings. Simmer to get happy for a little while to make the sauce for our Greek Salmon.
Mix together a yummy little Greek seasoning rub for the salmon. A blend of Lemon Pepper, Garlic Powder, Kosher Salt, and Italian Seasoning.
Sear the salmon in a skillet over medium high heat and cook for 3 minutes per side or until the cook line (when the fish turns opaque) reaches the middle. Then flip and cook another 3 to 4 minutes on the other side.
Cook up some whole wheat pearl couscous in good chicken stock. Toss with lemon juice and fresh parsley.
Place a mound of couscous on a plate or platter. Place cooked salmon on couscous and top with delicious Greek tomato olive sauce.
