2 tablespoons rose harissa
1 tablespoon coriander seeds, crushed
Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 x 600g piece sustainable salmon fillet (skin on)

1. Mix the harissa with the crushed coriander seeds and half the lemon zest. Rub this mixture all over the salmon and lay it on a baking sheet. Leave in a cool place to marinate for 30 minutes (or longer if you have time).

2. Heat the oven to 170°C/325°F/gas 3. Place the salmon in the heated oven and roast for 10–12 minutes until just cooked through.

3. Meanwhile, bring the stock to a simmer in a large pan, add the couscous and cook for 6–8 minutes until tender. Drain and tip into a large bowl. Cool slightly, then toss with the remaining lemon zest, the lemon juice, oil and herbs. Season well with salt and pepper. Flake the salmon over the top of the couscous, and serve.
