1 head broccoli, cut into florets
1 tablespoon butter, plus 1 tablespoon
1/4 cup yellow onion, minced
1 cup Israeli Couscous

Add in chicken stock and bring to a boil then cooked cover for 12 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed. Mix in mashed broccoli and stir until completely combined. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

In the preheated oven, cook salmon on baking sheet, for about 15 to 20 minutes, until cooked all the way through. Serve with couscous broccoli mash and drizzle with the extra special sauce.
