Asian-Style Salmon Couscous By Trisha Lewis, from her new book Trisha's Transformation.

Cork chef Trisha Lewis, aka Trisha’s Transformation, has inspired thousands of people with her weight loss story... now she’s launched a new book. Here she shares one of her recipes.

Trisha says: “I wanted to help anyone who may have been in my position and show them that you have never gone too far. The recipes in the book are simply, tasty and cost effective.

“I picked them because I find the food you need to eat in the typical diet boring and unsustainable. I would like to lose weight but not flavour.”


200g couscous

1 reduced salt fish stock cube

300ml boiling water

2tsp sesame oil

1tsp garlic puree

400g lean skinless salmon

50g frozen petit-pois

1 red pepper deseeded and diced

1 red onion diced

To garnish: fresh mint, lime wedge


Preheat oven to 180 degres.

Put the couscous in a bowl, crumble in the stock cube and pour over boiling water. Cover tightly with cling film and leave sit for five mins to allow grains absorb water and swell.

Rub your sesame oil and garlic puree on your salmon and bake on a tray in oven for 20 minutes.

Lightly sauté your peas, pepper and onion in a pan until cooked but crunchy. Combine with couscous, pop salmon on top and garnish.
