      I prepared this recipe last night, and DH and I thought that it was really good! It was very quick and easy to put together. We are constantly looking for new ways to prepare our salmon. We always use farm raised salmon from Scotland, which is the very best farm raised salmon you can purchase (at least here, anyway). I toasted the almonds in the oven and nuked the sliced carrots in the microwave for about 2 minutes to make sure they were properly done. I also used low sodium chicken broth as suggested in another review and used Israeli Couscous, which we like more than the regular. To top it off, we sprinkled a little parmesan cheese on the salmon about 5 minutes before it was done. This recipe is on our list of favorites! It makes a nice presentation for guests, too. Thanks, Geema for posting!

      This was great and sooo easy! I used chicken broth in place of the water and everything else was the same. Very good healthy dinner. Thanks!

      This is a great way to prepare salmon! It's pretty much a one-dish meal. It has a very subtle flavor that really brings out the fresh mint. Thanks to the advice of some more experiences Zaar chefs, I halved this recipe, including the water, and baked it in an 8x8 dish for 20 minutes. It was just the right amount of time for the salmon and couscous, although I would recommend cutting the carrots into smaller pieces if you're going to cook it for a shorter time like that. All in all this made for a very tasty dinner! Thanks, Geema.
