Servings 4 servings
Prep Time


  • 2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup plain dry couscous
  • 1 lemon grated and juiced
  • 4 Atlantic salmon fillets 6-ounce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 jar Benedicta Gourmet Creamy Garlic Aioli Sauce 8.5 ounce
  • 2 tablespoons minced Italian parsley


  1. In medium saucepan, bring chicken broth to a boil; add couscous, lemon peel, and lemon juice. Stir to combine; cover and remove from heat. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Rinse salmon; pat dry with paper towels.
  3. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Add oil to the skillet; swirl to coat. Add salmon, skin side up; sear for 2 minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook until salmon just flakes with a fork (4-6 minutes).
  4. Transfer salmon to a serving platter; cover with foil to keep warm. Add shallots and sauté until translucent (about 2 minutes). Remove skillet from heat, deglaze skillet with wine, stirring to scrape up any browned bits. Stir in Benedicta Aioli.
