This elegant meal-in-one from Tammy Strange of Winder, Georgia features a hearty portion of salmon served on flavorful couscous and topped with an amazing mango sauce featuring basil, honey and Dijon mustard.
OUR DAUGHTER sent us whole salmon for Christmas one year, so I searched the web and found this recipe. I have served this with a wild rice pilaf, and a green vegetable. With these colors, it makes a lovely presentation.

I thought I’d made salmon every way you can make it, until now. The tangy slaw, made with fennel and avocado, adds another layer of flavor that goes surprisingly well with salmon and other seafood.—Amber Massey, Argyle, Texas

We love salmon at our house and are always finding new ways to make it. This one turned out so well; the raspberry sauce adds a nice sweetness. My son calls it salmon candy! —Anna-Marie Williams, League City, Texas
