4.Whilst your couscous is resting, season the salmon with salt and pepper and use the same non-stick frying pan you used for cooking the couscous, add a drizzle of olive oil and sear the salmon fillets for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden and cooked through, make sure not to dry them out!
5.Serve them on top of couscous, lemon wedges and a crumbled feta.
