Coconut Lime Salmon With Herb Couscous Salad

Step 1

Season salmon liberally with salt and pepper on both sides. Chill.

Step 2

For couscous salad, heat a pan with 1 tablespoon olive oil and toast couscous until toasted yet not dry. This is a great technique to create texture. Cool to room temperature and fold the rest of the ingredients in, adjust seasoning, and chill for serving.

Step 3

Remove salmon from the refrigerator. Pat skin-side of salmon with paper towels. Utilizing a cast iron pan or heavy bottom sauté pan, bring to medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add patted dry side down and sear until golden brown. Remove salmon to a holding seared side up.

Step 4

In the same pan, add 2 teaspoons olive oil, shallots, and scallions and cook for one minute. Add garlic, serrano chili, and half of the lime zest and sauté for 2 minutes. Whisk in miso and cook for 1 minute. Add lime juice, agave, coconut milk, and vegetable stock or dashi and simmer on low heat for 4 minutes to reduce slightly.

Step 5

Heat sauce up to medium-low heat. Add salmon to the sauce, seared side up, and braise salmon for 3-4 minutes for a medium-rare finish (or more to your desired temperature).

Step 6

To plate, place ¾ cup couscous salad on each plate. Top with a salmon filet and pour about 1-2 oz. sauce over salmon. Zest lime to garnish and add coconut flakes.
