"Simple, tasty and fast! Salmon is sauteed with all ingredients at once, and served over couscous. Great with a spinach salad."


2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 (4 ounce) salmon steaks
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon lemon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water
1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 cups boiling water
1 cup uncooked couscous


Heat the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place salmon in the skillet, and season with garlic, lemon pepper and salt. Pour 1/4 cup water around salmon. Place tomatoes and cilantro in the skillet. Cover, and cook 15 minutes, or until fish is easily flaked with a fork.
Bring 2 cups water to boil in a pot. Remove form heat, and mix in couscous. Cover, and let sit 5 minutes. Serve the cooked salmon over couscous, and drizzle with sauce from skillet.
