MichaelaEats: Baked Scottish Salmon With Couscous And Vegetables

This meal took less than half an hour to make!!

Less than ten ingredients 

Four seasonings

Ingredients 

1. Two pieces of Scottish Salmon from M&S Food

2. One Lemon

3. Ground Salt

4. Ground Black Pepper 

5. Ground Paprika

6. Rosemary

7. Olive Oil

8. Vegetables (bag from M&S)

9. Cous Cous

The Salmon

  • First set your oven to 200 degrees Celsius or 400 degrees Fahrenheit 
  • Take your pieces of salmon and sprinkling salt across the top
  • Turn the salmon around and sprinkle salt across the back 
  • Repeat last step with each seasoning 
  • Cut half a lemon and squeeze across the salmon 
  • Drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil across the salmon 
  • Take an oven dish and line with foil
  • Add your salmon to the foil

Optional: Once the lemon has been squeezed across the pieces of salmon you can slice the lemon and put it on top of the Salmon pieces. I don’t really see the need to do this though. 

You should end up with this

  • Put your salmon into the preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius/400 degree Fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes 

Cous Cous 

  • Take your Cous Cous and add to a bowl
  • Add boiled water to the Cous Cous (enough so all the Cous Cous is covered but not drowning)
  • Cover the bowl with a lid for two minutes (as the steam cooks the Cous Cous)
  • Season with salt, pepper and paprika and a bit of olive oil and lemon

Vegetables 

  • Empty the vegetables into a pot 
  • Add boiling water to the pot 
  • Put the pot on the stove and cook for 4-6 minutes (or however long the pack says)
  • Once cooked, remove from the stove, drain the water and sprinkle salt over the vegetables.


That is it! This is probably one of the simplest things I make. I started to eat the salmon as you can see #unashamed. It’s quick, easy and fresh. Also quite cheap being under £10. Try it out.
