Instructions

  1. Place the couscous in a heatproof bowl. Add 1½ cups (375ml) boiling water. Stir and set aside, covered, for 5 minutes or until water is absorbed. Use a fork to separate grains.
  2. Meanwhile, steam the broccoli and beans for 3 minutes or until tender crisp. Refresh under cold running water. Drain and set aside.
  3. Remove the seeds from the pomegranate over a bowl, allowing any juices to fall into the bowl. Add the broccoli and beans to the couscous with the pomegranate seeds, chives and parsley. Whisk together the oil, vinegar, honey and 2 tablespoons of the pomegranate juice. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add dressing to the salad and gently toss to combine.
  4. Preheat a barbecue or chargrill on high. Season salmon and lightly spray with oil. Cook salmon, for 2-3 minutes each side, or until cooked to your liking. Arrange the salmon on a serving platter with lemon wedges and parsley sprigs. Serve with the couscous salad and yoghurt.
