sponsored-post

There’s still a few weeks of summer left, so why not try this Low Syn Cumin Dusted Salmon Skewers with Moroccan Style Cous Cous.

It’s a perfect summer dish and you could even cook it outside, if the good old British weather holds up long enough to fire up the barbecue! And if you don’t fancy salmon you could always try it with chicken. It’s just as good!

Ainsley Harriott Cous Cous

A few weeks ago we were sent some samples of Ainsley Harriott cous cous to try. We’d  been planning on making a cumin dusted salmon recipe for a while now, so this was a perfect opportunity. And we thought the Ainsley Harriott Moroccan Medley Cous Cous would be an ideal accompaniment. We weren’t wrong!

Obviously we couldn’t resist making the cous cous even more Slimming World friendly by adding a load of extra speed.

I say more Slimming World friendly because despite the new bigger pack size the Ainsley Harriott Moroccan Medley Cous Cous is only 2 syns for the whole pack. That’s if you follow the instructions on the packet.

The new 125g pack size is plenty for 2 people, so that means this Low Syn Cumin Dusted Salmon Skewers with Moroccan Style Cous Cous will only cost you 1 syn per portion. Which can’t be bad can it?

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Put the salmon chunks in a bowl and coat with the cumin and paprika
  2. Thread the salmon onto 4 skewers, we use wooden ones that have been soaked in water to stop them burning in the oven, but you can use metal ones if you want. Squeeze the juice from a couple of lemon wedges over the salmon
  3. Place the completed skewers on a baking tray and cook for 10 minutes at 190-200°C, turning once during cooking
  4. While the skewers are cooking make up the cous cous in a large bowl. One 125g pack will take 200ml of boiling water. Stir, cover with cling film and leave for 3 minutes
  5. When the cous cous is ready stir in the chopped veg and half of the chopped parsley
  6. Set this aside, then in a blender add the yogurt, remaining herbs and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  7. Blitz for a minute of two until the herbs are really fine and the sauce is a nice green colour
  8. Divide the cous cous between 2 plates, then serve two salmon skewers on each bed of cous cous
  9. Finally drizzle the salmon with a little of the herby yogurt sauce, garnish with a lemon wedge and enjoy!
