Honey-Soy Salmon over Edamame Couscous
For the salmon
- Check the salmon over for bones. Cut into 4 portions. In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, garlic, orange juice, lemon zest, and salt. Add the salmon and let the fish marinate 30 minutes.
- Heat oven to 400F.
- Put the salmon in a 13x9 baking dish. Top each with a little pinch fresh cracked pepper. Bake 10 minutes at 400F or until fish flakes easily with a fork but is still very moist.
- While the salmon is cooking, make the couscous. In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil. Add the ginger and garlic and cook briefly until fragrant. Add the stock and soy sauce and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat; add the couscous and salt. Layer the edamame on top of the couscous and put the lid on for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and toss in the parsley and pinch pepper. Taste for seasoning.
- Serve the fish over a heaping of couscous. Garnish with additional parsley if desired. Serves 4.
