Weeknight GREEKnight Salmon Bowls😍



2 peppers, largely chopped

1 red onion, largely chopped

1 lb salmon

1 cup israeli couscous

high heat oil/butter

rosemary or thyme




For the sauce

1/2 cup yogurt (or tahini if dairy free)

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Chopped dill

Chopped mint leaves

Salt, pepper



  1. Preheat oven to 400.

  2. Chop the peppers and onions into like sized pieces, and arrange on a sheetpan to roast for 15-20 minutes.

  3. While that’s roasting, cook your grains (I used couscous but I have loved orzo and quinoa here!) Cook according to package instructions. season with salt, pepper, and turmeric (if you are feeling crazy!)

  4. Pat salmon dry with a paper towel on both sides (Chef @nikhilabuvala teaches this method in the KYPO Course!) and sear with 1 tbsp high heat oil/tallow/butter + some hard herbs like thyme. Then bake for 10 min in oven.

  5. Make the yogurt sauce by assembling and mixing all ingredients.

  6. When salmon, couscous, and roasted veggies are done, assemble a portion of each on plates, top with olives, cucumbers, and yogurt sauce.


Enjoy! this should make 3-5 servings for others or later!
