Tandoori Salmon Rolled In Whole Wheat Couscous #SundaySupper

Today my #SundaySupper team is doing a ” what does Sunday Supper mean  you ” ? theme. I got involved in Sunday Supper 7 months back and have loved being a part of it. The concept behind it which is bringing families together for a meal is so beautiful and I love that Isabel aka Family Foodie coined the idea and put #sundaysupper together ! Thanks Isabel !! I love the idea of family eating together for dinner, but some weekdays it’s tough. Kids have activities so sometimes dinner is grab and go. Sunday however we do relax and have a nice meal around the table. Kids talk, we talk and all this talking builds precious memories together. So important !! Some days wer’e travelling back home and Sunday supper is on the road, but it’s still us sharing good times.  Sometimes wer’e honored to have guests with us sharing Sunday Supper or we are guests at someone’s home, but again it’s memories and good times. When I say good, life does not bring us good ALL the time, but as families we embrace the good times and the bad times and are in together and that’s what Sunday Supper means to me! I decide to make a family favorite for this week’s recipe. Salmon smeared with spicy tandoori paste is  rolled in a mixture of whole wheat couscous and ground  flaxseed. Bake this or pan roast it for a crunchy on the outside but moist on the inside treat ! Delish ! Want proof ? I made some for dinner last night thinking I would have leftovers today, but no ! It’s all gone ! hope you like my family favorite recipe !

 

 

Nutrition Nuts and bolts

Salmon is full of heart healthy omega three which supports barin function, heart health and does the body so much good. Whole wheat couscous adds fiber and some complex carbohydate fuel power. Ground flaxseed adds to the fiber and omega 3 making this a super healthy dish.

 

Whole wheat Couscous +  Flaxseed make a great substitute for breadcrumbs !!

 

Prepping the salmon !

 

Baked and plated ! A crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside treat !!
