Preheat your oven to 400°F (to bake the fish and roast the snap peas). Start prepping when your oven comes up to temperature!

Wash and dry all produce.* Zest, then juice half the lemon (1 lemon for 4 ppl). Cut the remaining lemon into 1/4-inch rounds. Finely chop the chives. Finely chop 1 tbsp tarragon leaves (double for 4 ppl.), reserving remaining tarragon sprigs. Cut two 12x8" squares of foil (4 squares for 4 ppl). Season both sides of the salmon with salt and pepper.


Arrange the foil pieces on a baking sheet. Divide the remaining tarragon sprigs between each piece of foil. Place salmon on top and cover with 2 lemon rounds. Fold foil over salmon and crimp the edges to seal into a packet. Bake in the centre of the oven, until salmon is opaque and cooked through, 10-12 min. Set the packets aside to rest for 5 min.


Meanwhile, on another baking sheet, toss the sugar snap peas with a drizzle of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the centre of the oven until tender-crisp, 3-5 min.


Meanwhile, heat a medium pot over medium heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3-4 min. Add 2/3 cups water (double for 4 ppl) and broth concentrate(s). Bring to a boil over high heat. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the couscous. Cover and let stand for 5 min.


Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the chopped tarragon, lemon juice, half the lemon zest, 1 tbsp chives (double for 4 ppl) and 1 tbsp oil (double for 4 ppl). Season with salt and pepper. Fluff the couscous with a fork and stir in the remaining lemon zest and remaining chives. Season with salt and pepper.


Divide the salmon fillets, couscous and snap peas between plates. Spoon the tarragon-chive herb sauce over the salmon.
