Blackened Salmon, Couscous, Lime dressing


Blackened salmon does not mean that the fish is burned!! It actually refers to the slight charring of the spices, not the fish, which gives the fish a smokey, spicy flavour. Don’t overload the salmon with too many spices as you still want it’s flavour to shine through.
