Here is a wonderful dish prepared by one of my travel blog buddies, Lucinate! If you are into world travel, you should definately check out her blog, it is full of travel details all around the world. She just recently returned from a scuba adventure in Thailand. Her cooking is inspired by her many trips! Speaking of Thai, this is a Thai-Inspired Salmon with Cous Cous! Looks incredible!

Sprinkle thai spices to taste over.

Add broccoli and beans and mix with salmon. Sprinkle more thai spices over veggies.

Cook for a few minutes.

Push salmon/veggie mix to one side of the frying pan.

Add can of chickpeas to empty side of frying pan and add cooked cous cous on top of chickpeas.

Try to mix the chickpeas and cous cous together without getting the salmon and vegies involved.

When the chickpea/cous cous mixture is heated sufficiently turn off heat.
