Fruited Couscous-Stuffed Salmon Roast
  • 1  stalk celery, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1  medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1  tablespoon  margarine or butter
  • 2/3  cup  chicken broth
  • 1/2  cup  apple cider or apple juice
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground coriander
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground allspice
  • 1/8  teaspoon  pepper
  • 1 1/2  cups  corn bread stuffing mix
  • 1 1/2  cups  chopped pear
  • 1/2  cup  couscous
  • 1/2  cup  golden raisins
  • 1/4  cup  snipped parsley
  • 1 3  pound  fresh salmon roast (about 8 inches long and 2-1/4 inches thick), boned, or one 4- to 5-pound whole dressed salmon (with head and tail)
  • 1  tablespoon  cooking oil
  •  Pear wedges (optional)
  •  Celery leaves (optional)

1. For stuffing, in a medium saucepan cook celery and onion in margarine or butter until onion is tender but not brown; remove from heat. Stir in chicken broth, apple cider or apple juice, coriander, allspice, and pepper.

2. In a medium bowl combine stuffing mix, chopped pear, couscous, raisins, and parsley. Add celery mixture; toss lightly to mix.

3. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Fill fish cavity with 1 cup of the stuffing. Tie or skewer fish closed. Place stuffed fish on a greased rack in a large shallow baking pan. Place the remaining stuffing in a 1-quart casserole; cover casserole.

4. Brush outside of fish with oil; cover loosely with foil. Bake fish and stuffing in a 350 degree F oven about 50 minutes for a salmon roast (50 to 60 minutes for a whole dressed salmon) or until fish flakes easily with a fork and stuffing is heated through. Garnish with pear wedges and celery leaves, if desired. Makes 8 servings.
