Baked Salmon, Cous Cous, and Salad

NEMs! ​

I love this dish because I can quickly prepare it, throw it in the oven, and multi-task some house stuff while everything is cooking! 😉


Prep time: 15 min Cook time: 25-35 min


This is a quick and easy dinner, here’s what you’ll need:

~ Salmon Filet 1.5lbs

~ Lemon Pepper

~ Olive oil

~ Foil

~ CousCous (I love Far East Olive & Garlic)

~ Salad and your toppings



~ Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

Salmon 8

~  In a baking dish, cover the bottom with foil. This is so you won’t have to wash the dish when you’re done! Easy clean up! 😉

Salmon 1

~ Place another two sheets of foil on top of the bottom foil. This is what you will wrap the salmon in.

Salmon 2   Salmon 3

~ Rinse your salmon then place in the foil that is already on the baking dish

Salmon 4

~ Drizzle with olive oil

Salmon 6

~ Spinkle lemon pepper – don’t be shy with the lemon pepper!

Salmon 5

~ Wrap the salmon in the foil so that the steam cannot escape – this will ensure that your salmon comes out moist

Salmon 7

~Depending on the thickness of your salmon, place in the over for 25 minutes, check once timer goes off, then put back in for 5 minutes at a time until you reach the level of firmness you want. I don’t like my salmon overcooked

~  Prep your side salad

~  Prep your cous cous per the box directions

The 1.5 lbs of Salmon makes 4-6 servings

Salmon 9 - small - no excuse post

  • Wash your mushrooms (Yes, that’s my dog Kimo Sabe wondering if I’ll give him one)




  • Heat up the olive oil in a pan and add the minced garlic




  • Add your shrimp, generously season with the lemon pepper and sauté for about 5 minutes then add your mushrooms

  • You want to cook your shrimp thoroughly but not too much where they are dried out
  • Prepare your salad including tossing it in the dressing

  • For a healthier alternative, you can use a spring mix salad, light dressing, and cut up seasonal fruit like strawberries which goes really well with this dressing —>




  • Place your salad on a plate then scoop up the shrimp and mushrooms on top
  • I like to add slices of avocado on the side 🙂
