Apricot Salmon with Herb

Recommended Posts

Here is a healthy recipe for Apricot Salmon with Herbs.

 

Ingredients

 

1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt

3 scallions, sliced, greens and whites separated

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

3/4 teaspoon salt, divided

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup chopped dried apricots

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

1 1/4 cups water

1 cup whole-wheat couscous

1 pound salmon fillet, skinned and cut into 4 portions

1/4 cup chopped toasted cashews

 

Directions

 

1. Preheat grill to medium-high or position rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler.

 

2. Combine yogurt, scallion greens, lemon juice, cilantro, parsley, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl.

 

3. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add apricots, ginger, scallion whites and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add water and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in couscous. Remove from heat, cover and let stand until the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

 

4. Meanwhile, rub salmon with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. If broiling, coat a broiler pan with cooking spray. If grilling, oil the grill rack. Grill or broil the salmon until browned and just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Serve with the couscous, topped with the yogurt sauce and cashews.

This sounds good. Something to try this weekend, although I'll have to consider carefully whether I should have the couscous - maybe a little ;).

Well, this particular recipe doesn't seem too healthy to ME:

 

none fat yogurt?

1/2 cup chopped dried apricots?

1 cup whole-wheat couscous??:eek:

 

And all these carbs added to ONLY 1 lb of fish? With practically no fat to balance off the spike? It could be tasty, but personally I would expect 180-200 BG after eating this dish. I don't need that. But YMMV and somebody else can probably handle this. Good luck!
