  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon , plus a large pinch
  • 200ml hot vegetable stock

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1 heaped tbsp harissa paste
  • 170g tub 0% fat Greek yogurt

    Heat the grill. Put the couscous, sultanas, most of the coriander, 1 tsp cinnamon and some seasoning in a bowl. Pour over the hot vegetable stock and set aside for 5 mins to soak.

  • STEP 2

    Mix together the pinch of cinnamon, honey and oil. Sit the salmon in a baking tray, spread over the honey mixture and season. Cook under a hot grill for about 8 mins until the fish is cooked through.

RECIPE TIPS
MAKING IT WITH CHICKEN

Swap the salmon for 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts. Slash each breast a few times before rubbing with the honey mixture, then grill for 10-15 mins until cooked through, turning halfway through cooking.
