Salmon encrusted with sesame seeds makes for an impressive dinner presentation and a healthy dose of Omega-3's.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.
