  • Step 1

    Begin by preheating your oven to 200°C (approximately 392°F). While the oven is heating, start preparing your ingredients: juice the lemon to obtain 1/4 lemon juice per person; finely chop the garlic; thinly slice the spring onion; chop the fresh parsley; chop the fresh rosemary; and chop the sun-dried tomatoes. Set these prepared ingredients aside.

  • Step 2

    Prepare the couscous according to package instructions, but substitute a portion of the water with the same amount of lemon juice for an enhanced flavor. Once cooked, fluff with a fork and mix in the chopped parsley, spring onion, sun-dried tomatoes, and a drizzle of olive oil (1/2 tablespoon per person) to keep it moist and flavorful. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Step 3

    Lay out a piece of baking paper large enough to create a parcel for each salmon fillet. Divide the prepared couscous among the center of each piece of baking paper, creating a bed for the salmon to sit on.

  • Step 4

    Place a salmon fillet on top of each bed of couscous. Drizzle each fillet with olive oil (1/2 tablespoon per person), then sprinkle the chopped garlic, rosemary, and a bit of salt and pepper over each fillet. Finish by drizzling the lemon juice evenly over the salmon.

  • Step 5

    Carefully fold the baking paper over the salmon and couscous to create a sealed parcel, ensuring no steam can escape during cooking. This will help to keep the salmon moist and infuse it with the flavors of the garlic, rosemary, and lemon.

  • Step 6

    Place the parcels on a baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of your salmon fillets. The salmon should be cooked through but still moist inside.

  • Step 7

    Carefully open each parcel after baking, being cautious of the hot steam that will escape. Serve the salmon and couscous parcels immediately, garnished with additional fresh parsley if desired.
