Vegetable stock cube(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan 170°C, Gas Mark 5. To toast the pine nuts, put a dry frying pan on a medium heat, add the pine nuts and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring, until toasted and golden. Remove and cool. Put the couscous in a bowl and cover with vegetable stock. Cover with cling film and set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Lay four large squares of foil on a work surface. Mix the cranberries, pine nuts, mint, basil, mixed spice and some seasoning into the couscous, then put a quarter of the couscous into the centre of each foil square.
  3. Top each couscous mound with a salmon fillet and drizzle each with 1 tablespoon of the white wine. Fold up the corners of the foil and seal it to make a parcel.
  4. Put the parcels on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 15 minutes until cooked. Serve immediately.
