  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, plus 1 lemon cut into wedges
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets (4 to 6 ounces each)
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 cup couscous
  • Salt


  1. Step 1

    Heat broiler with rack 6 inches from heat. Whisk together soy sauce, lemon juice, and sesame oil.

  2. Step 2

    On a rimmed baking sheet, arrange asparagus and lemon wedges and brush with sauce. Broil 3 minutes. Add salmon to pan, brush with sauce, and season with salt and pepper. Broil until asparagus is tender and salmon is opaque throughout, about 6 minutes, rotating pan, brushing salmon and asparagus with sauce, and flipping asparagus halfway through.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, bring 1 1/4 cups water to boil. Stir in couscous and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with fork. Serve salmon and asparagus with couscous, drizzled with remaining sauce.

    Sarah, when are you going to go back to vegan cooking? We loved that one week last winter sometime! I still watch you every day and try to veganize everything you make. We really enjoy your cooking and sense of humor, but just wish you cooked cruelty-free!
