Having overindulged this week on coffee and cake to drag myself through the working week, I felt like a more healthy, light dinner.
As my lovely man was away, it only needed to be a meal for one and importantly, it had to be quick. So, here we have an extremely quick, tasty, healthy, mess-free dinner.
I've gone for a slightly Thai style salmon dish - but these parcels work with so many different combinations.
- Start with a sheet of foil and drizzle with a little olive oil.
- Prepare couscous as you would usually and then pile it up on the foil.
- Add some finely sliced onion.
- Place the salmon on top and add slices of tomato and thinly sliced fresh ginger.
- Drizzle with soy sauce and put some wedges of lemon in too (I'd recommend adding the lemon even if you don't usually like the flavour - it helps to add liquid so that the salmon steams and will only taste lemony if you squeeze the juice over the top).
- Fold the foil over and seal the edges by scrunching the edges - keep the steam in, it'll keep it moist.
- Put the parcel into the oven at 200°C and cook for 10-15mins.
- When they're done, simply cut open and eat!
You can scoop it all out and plate it up - but why bother. Cut a cross in the top and serve like that. They look more interesting that way.
There you go - dinner prepared and cooked in 20 minutes and no washing up.
