MichaelaEats: Baked Scottish Salmon With Couscous And Vegetables

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

Less than ten ingredients 

Four seasonings


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


  • 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.
