Woman's Weekly recipe Try this delicious grilled salmon fillet topped with wholegrain mustard and served with a soya bean and pea couscous. A perfect quick, cheap and simple to make meal for two


  • 300g (10oz) salmon fillet, cut in 2
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons wholegrain mustard
  • 6 cherry tomatoes on the vine
  • 90g (3oz) frozen soya beans
  • 90g (3oz) frozen peas
  • 150g (5oz) couscous
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 gherkin, chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

Try this with basil pesto instead of wholegrain mustard for a change.


  1. Set the grill to high. Put the salmon fillets on a Teflon non-stick sheet, on the grill pan, and season with salt and pepper. Spread mustard on each fillet. Grill for 5 mins, then add the tomatoes and cook for 5 mins.
  2. Pour 150ml (¼ pint) boiling water from a kettle into a small pan. Add the soya beans, cover and cook for 5 mins. Add the peas and cook for 1 min, then turn off the heat. Stir in the couscous, oil and lemon juice and leave for 3 mins for the couscous to absorb the liquid. Season and stir in the gherkin and parsley. Serve with salmon and tomatoes.
