Salmon with Couscous and Broccoli

If you’re looking for the perfect side for your salmon, both light and rich in flavor, try pairing it up with couscous and broccoli. We recommend you add raisins, for their sweet flavor, and pine nuts, for a bit of crunch.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
