Couscous is made of crushed durum wheat semolina, and is a very versatile grain which requires no cooking.

It can be mixed with many things to make an interesting accompaniment to a meal, or can even be eaten on its own.

In this one, I have added pistachios for a crunchy texture and I served it with my curried red salmon patties.

You could also add cut up cooked vegetables, which would make it even healthier.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

1 cup couscous (I used corn couscous)
Up to ½ cup of shelled pistachio nuts
Up to ¼ cup green olives, sliced
Zest of a lemon
A few tbsp currants
Fresh coriander to serve

Heat the oven to medium and cook the pistachios on a tray for about 5 minutes.

Chop them roughly.


Pour about one cup (plus a tiny bit) of boiling water on the couscous and leave to stand for a few minutes.

The water should be absorbed in about 3 minutes

Add the pistachios, sliced olives, and lemon zest, and mix.

Then add the currants, salt and pepper, and mix well.


Add as much coriander as you want to the top -I grow coriander in my garden and did not have a lot!

Serve while still warm.

Can also be eaten the next day at room temperature.
