  2. Prep the salmon: make sure its defrosted (if it was frozen), put lemon slices on it, some salt, some lemon-pepper, and wrap it in foil.
  3. When the asparagus has been in the oven for 10 minutes, drop the temp to 325°, add the fish and cook for about 20 more min.

Tips & Tricks:

  • Fish is done cooking when it flakes apart when you poke it with a fork.  If it looks like jello when you poke it cook it longer. If it’s hard and tough you cooked it too long.
  • The veggies should still have a little crunch to them if you want any nutrition out of them.
  • Couscous needs to be fluffed with your fork to keep it light and airy.
