    Bec's Note:

    The original name for this recipe was "Wild Salmon with Pearl Couscous, Slow-Roasted Tomatoes, and Lemon Oregano Oil" but it was too long so I had to shorten it! For this recipe, wild salmon is best, for its flavor, which is more mild than that of farm raised. A note to save time: Tomatoes can be roasted 3 days ahead and chilled in oil in an airtight container. Just bring to room temperature before proceeding, and you're good to go!
