Salmon encrusted with sesame seeds makes for an impressive dinner presentation and a healthy dose of Omega-3's.
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
1 1/4 cups water
3/4 cup uncooked couscous
1/4 cup sliced green onions
2 tablespoons orange juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
How to Make It
Combine sesame seeds, rind, and salt in a shallow dish. Drizzle oil over fish. Dredge fish in sesame mixture. Place the fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
While the fish is cooking, bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan; gradually stir in couscous. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Stir in onions, juice, and salt. Serve with fish.

The fish was wonderful and incredibly easy. I did not have an orange so I used lemon zest instead. Very healthy and I love the crisp crust on it. The couscous needed more flavor, but I am not a fan of plain couscous.
