    Really yummy. Only thing I would change: I would cut the amount of salt in the couscous in half - it was a little too strong for my taste. I also made the grilled summer squash that was recommended with this recipe. Easy dinner, mostly on the grill, which was great on the very hot night I made this.

    Our grill was out of gas, so I put the salmon in parchment paper bags and cooked in the oven on 350º for about 10 minutes - it was still fantastic! The couscous was so delicious, my husband wants me to save the recipe just to make the couscous again!

    I loved the seasoning on the salmon, lots of flavor without overwhelming the fish. I burnt the pine nuts but they were still edible and the rest of the couscous was really tasty! Check out my post with step-by-step photos at

    Meh. I don't know what I did wrong, but the couscous had way too much liquid (maybe because I used Israeli couscous?) and was just kind of blah. The salmon was pretty good, though. And preparation was fast. Still nothing to write home about, as far as I could tell.

    Made for dinner last night and my husband could not stop raving about it. Very flavorful and will be making this again. I use Israeli couscous....we like the texture more than normal couscous. Also I used a grill pan indoors....too hot outside for the regular grill and it worked perfectly! I followed the recipe exactly.
