Hoisin and Citrus Glazed Salmon and Raisin Dotted Couscous

I started WW this week and I have vowed to eat healthier. This is one of our favorite recipes. I bumped up the healthy factor by purchasing whole wheat couscous. I buy in bulk because we love it so much. Only one cup can feed a family of four. You can also vary the herbs you put in or even add garlic. It comes together in less than 25 minutes. During the summer we grill with wood planks.

Raisin Dotted Couscous

1 cup whole wheat couscous
1 box sun maid raisins
1 cup chicken broth
a pat of butter
garlic clove (optional)

Bring the chicken broth and the raisins to a boil. Add the couscous and stir. Remove from the heat and cover. After 5 minutes fluff with a fork.
Serving size one cup 2 points WW

Hoisin and Citrus Glaze

2 TBSP Hoisin Sauce
2 TBSP lemon juice
1 TBSP honey
1 TBSP Ketchup
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Mix all of the above ingredients in a bowl. Reserve one half for glazing after the salmon comes out of the oven.

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Spray the bottom of a glass baking dish and place salmon skin side down. Add a TBSP of glaze over each piece of salmon and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and spread the remaining glaze over the salmon. Serve with raisin dotted couscous.
