      I enjoyed this tonight with two small changes, I dislike dill and used thyme in it's place and skipped the spinach. I gave it less time under the broiler and more in the oven as part of my salmos was very thin and part quite thick. Two mins under the broiler and the rest in the oven worked well in my case. I must say that the couscous was a welcome change from rice and potatoes. :D

      I really loved the ease of preparing this salmon...simply brush on mustard and top with a crunchy topping and pop under the broiler. I was rushing and left mine a couple of seconds too long, but still delicious. Made for PRMR tag game.
