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 (use same for 4 ppl. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. While the water comes to a boil, trim green beans. Roughly chop dill. Zest, then juice half the lemon. Cut remaining lemon into wedges.

Roast veggies

Toss green beans and tomatoes with 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) and half the garlic puree 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.

Cook couscous

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 return couscous to the same pot, off heat.

Cook salmon

While couscous cooks, pat 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.**

Finish couscous

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

Finish and serve

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