Salmon, Asparagus and Couscous Salad

This was delicious, really lovely flavours and it was really good to have some asparagus even if it was grown in Mexico! I can't wait for the English asparagus season to start.

Salmon, Asparagus and Couscous Salad (from My Daily Morsel)
(Serves 4)
4 skinless salmon fillets
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
500g asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 in pieces
250g Israeli couscous
½ red onion, thinly sliced
100g feta cheese, crumbled
For the dressing
4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp chopped dill
salt and pepper
Preheat the grill.
Drizzle the salmon with the olive oil and season with the salt and pepper. Grill the salmon for 6 to 8 mins, until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily. Remove from the grill and break the fish up into bite-size pieces.
Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil. Add the couscous and cook according to packet instructions adding the asparagus for the last 2-3 mins. Drain and run under the cold tap, then drain again well.
Put the oil, lemon juice, dill, salt, and pepper in a jam jar. Shake until well combined.
Put the asparagus, couscous, salmon, red onion, and feta in a large bowl and mix well. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Serve.
