Curried Couscous

Curried Couscous

Here’s a sweet-savory recipe for Curried Couscous that is made for your flat-belly diet. Flavorful curry and chicken broth balance the sweetness from raisins and apples, while red pepper and parsley add color to the whole-wheat couscous. You might think of couscous (KOO-skoos) as a grain, but it’s actually a form of pasta. Couscous, which originated in North Africa, is made of semolina granules that are steamed or boiled.


1-1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons curry powder
1-1/3 cups whole-wheat couscous, dry
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
1/2 cup Honeycrisp apple, diced
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
3 tablespoons 100% orange juice

  1. In a medium pot, place the chicken broth and curry powder and bring to a boil. Stir in the couscous; cover. Remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Pour the couscous in a large bowl. Stir in the curry powder until blended.
  3. Add the parsley, apple, raisins, bell pepper, and orange juice. Stir until all the ingredients are incorporated.

Salmon en Croute

Salmon en Croute


  • 1 salmon fillet (about 1 1/2 pounds/750 g)
  • 1 pound/500 g asparagus, trimmed 
  • Salt
  • 1/4 cup /60 ml creme fraiche
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • pound/450 g puff pastry (2 sheets)
  • egg, lightly beaten

  • Directions:

    Skin and bone the salmon and set aside. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F/230 degrees C.

      Cut the tips off the asparagus. Reserve the stems and poach the tips in boiling salted water until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain well, refresh in ice cold water, then drain again, leaving to sit so that all the water comes off. Puree the asparagus and stir in the creme fraiche, dill and lemon zest to blend. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

        Lay 1 sheet of puff pastry on a damp baking sheet with the long edge facing you. Lay the salmon on the pastry, like a picture in its frame. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread the top of the salmon with the asparagus puree. Lay the raw stems of asparagus on top of the puree, like pencils.

          Brush the margins of the pastry with the egg wash. Lay the second sheet of pastry over the salmon and press the edges to seal, like a giant ravioli. Trim the edges, leaving a 1-inch/2.5 cm border. Press with the tines of a fork, then, with the dull edge of a knife, scallop the edges. Make 2 or 3 slits in the top to allow steam to escape. Brush all over with the egg wash and bake until puffed up and golden brown, about 20 minutes.

            Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing. This dish is also good at room temperature.
