Salmon is one of the few fishies I like, so I need lots of recipes so it isn't the same old thing.

Even though there was a significant mistake in the directions at the time I made this, this is still what I consider to be not only extremely healthy fare, but also restaurant-quality. I also love that this satisfies everything I could want at dinner: protein, carbs, vegetable. The error: at the time I made this, the ingredients' list called for 2 1/4 cups water; it should read "2 1/4 cups water, divided"; use only 1 cup with the kale; the remaining 1 1/2 cups is used in the couscous cooking process. Made for my PAC Fall 2009 co-host!
