Teriyaki Salmon, Cheesy Couscous & Heirloom Tomato

barbara lentz


A friend gave me these delicious baby heirloom tomatoes from her garden and I was wondering what I was going to do with them and I had some salmon in the fridge and a box of couscous in the pantry so I came up with this delicious meal. My husband loved it and I took leftovers to work and my co-workers were drooling over my lunch.
