Orange-Sesame Glazed Salmon with Tangiers Couscous

Here's what my family had for dinner last night. I have to admit, although this is often the way we eat (a protein, a starch, and a vegetable) this particular meal, minus the green beans, came from a meal-prep place. One of those places where you go in and prepare your meals, freeze them, and then defrost and cook. My favorite one in our area is going out of business so they actually put this meal together for me and I just picked it up but I cooked it!

The salmon was marinated in something (not sure what). Then I grilled it on my George Foreman Grill (LOVE that thing!) for 6 minutes. There was a citrus glaze that came with it that I brushed on a couple of times during the grilling process. If doing this from scratch I probably would have skipped the marinade and maybe brushed on a Teriyaki glaze or even pineapple juice.

The Couscous was a little spicy. If doing it from scratch I would have just made plain, or flavored, couscous and thrown in about 1/4 cup of raisins (that's what this dish had). Couscous is EXTREMELY easy to make and really fast! Then I just steamed the green beans.

And for dessert I made this delectable little number!...

I got it from The Pioneer Woman. I just happened to have a big container of blueberries on hand when I read her post about Yogurt Cream and Berries. I had to try it! I used Organic Plain Yogurt and because of that my cream came out a lot runnier than hers but it was still divine!

Our little meal prep place went out of business too. That looks good! I think I'll have to get some fish for this week. Thanks!
