I really like cooking but when you are busy, it is so handy to have a few recipes on hand that are quick, easy and healthy to make. This salmon recipe with vegetable couscous (or with quinoa if you are gluten-free), literally took me 10 minutes to put together. The kids preferred to have the salmon mashed up in the couscous but you can serve it wither way. I also added some orange pepper in with the onion so you can add any other veg that you would like.
