Remember that couscous featured in last night’s post?
That couscous I had great plans with for today’s lunch?

Yep, this is the couscous we’re talking about.
The leftovers from yesterday’s dinner made a great base for today’s lunch:

‘Smoked Salmon Couscous Salad’
Inspired by Giraffe’s salmon and sushi salad

  • 100 gr (3/4 a cup) of couscous
  •  the same amount of boiling water
  • one tomato
  • half an avocado
  • half a granny smith apple
  • pepper and dried garlic
  • half a zucchini
  • some olive oil
  • smoked salmon
  • a carrot
  • optional: soy sauce
For the couscous: pour the boiling water over the couscous, let it rest for a couple of minutes until all the water is absorbed then ‘fluff’ the couscous with a fork (you can also add some olive oil at this point). While the couscous is resting chop up the tomato, apple and the avocado and add this to the couscous when it’s done, add pepper and garlic to spice things.

Grill the zucchini in a skillet on high in some olive oil. When it’s done place it on the bottom of the bowl. Spoon some of the couscous salad on top of that. Top it off with shreds of smoked salmon and carrot. You can always add some soy sauce for extra flavour. 
All the salmon used in this post was Mona-approved 

Not to shabby, right?
But for my birthday (in about a month) I’d really like some real sushi for once, living in a small town is such a pain when it comes to raw fish cravings …
Love, M.

  1. That’s a great picture of Mona – is she named after a literary character? And you are a November baby???? Yay! Message me your b-day!

    • I just liked the sounds, but she isn’t named after a literary character, if she’s named after anyone it would be the Mona Lisa 😉 My birthday is the 11th of November (wich is a bank holiday in Belgium, yeay!)
