we decided to combine one of our favorite couscous salads (here) with seared salmon and french green beans. (i just like to say french green beans)
how to sear salmon:
sprinkle the salmon fillet on both sides with salt and the black pepper. In a large, nonstick fry pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tsp. canola oil. add the fish and cook, turning once, until opaque throughout when tested with the tip of a knife, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
we added the green beans at the last 1-2 minutes of searing so they have a nice cooked-ness. we also added a bit of lime juice to everything.
