Ingredients

For the tagine
  • pinch of saffron strands
  • 300ml hot chicken or vegetable stock, made with ½ stockpot or cube
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 2 red onions, finely sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tbsp rose harissa paste
  • 500g mixed colour cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 preserved lemons, skin only, finely sliced
  • 1 x 400g tin chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 50g pitted green olives
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets
  • handful of chopped coriander
For the herby couscous
  • 250g couscous
  • 300ml hot chicken or vegetable stock, made with ½ stockpot or cube
  • 15g butter
  • handful of chopped coriander
  • handful of chopped parsley

Step by step

  1. For the tagine, add the saffron strands to the hot stock and set aside to infuse. Heat the oil in a shallow casserole or sauté pan and fry the onion for about 8 minutes or until very soft. Add the garlic and continue to cook for a further minute, before adding the spices and harissa paste. Continue to cook for a couple of minutes, stirring.
  2. Add the tomatoes and preserved lemons to the pan and cook for a couple of minutes before adding the saffron stock, chickpeas and olives. Continue to simmer uncovered for around 10 minutes, until the tomatoes have started to break down and the liquid has reduced slightly.
  3. Add the salmon fillets to the pan, nestling them into the sauce. Cover with a lid and simmer gently for 7-8 minutes, or until the fillets are cooked through. Season to taste.
  4. Meanwhile, put the couscous in a bowl and stir in the hot stock and butter. Cover with a plate and leave for 5 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Fluff the couscous with a fork and stir through the herbs. Season to taste and serve with the tagine.
