Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce.

Add 6 cups water and 1 tsp salt to a medium pot. (NOTE: Use same for 4 ppl.) Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. While the water comes to a boil, trim the green beans. Roughly chop the dill. Peel, then mince the garlic. Zest, then juice half the lemon. Cut remaining lemon into wedges.


Toss the green beans and tomatoes with garlic and 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the middle of the oven until, veggies are tender-crisp, 8-10 min.


While veggies roast, add couscous to the boiling water. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 6-8 min. When couscous is done, reserve 2 tbsp pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain and set aside.


While couscous cooks, pat the salmon dry with paper towels. Sprinkle lemon zest over top, then season with salt and pepper. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then salmon. Pan-fry, until golden-brown and cooked through, 3-4 min per side.**


Add reserved pasta water, half the dill (all for 4 ppl), 1 tbsp lemon juice and 1/2 tbsp butter (dbl both for 4 ppl) to the drained couscous. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.


Divide the couscous, salmon and roasted veggies between plates. Squeeze over a lemon wedge, if desired.
