1 – Place 1 and one-third cup of water in a covered baking dish, with the spice packet from a box of Parmesan couscous. Season with a few drops of olive oil. Microwave on high for 6 minutes (or until boiling). When finished, add the couscous; stir. Keep covered for at least 5 minutes.
2 – Place one-half jar of marinara sauce in a covered baking dish. Add one-third cup of almond or dairy creamer and one-half medium sliced onion. Season with 1 teaspoon of minced garlic and a few drops of olive oil. Stir well. Microwave on high for 3 minutes.
3 – Place the salmon in the sauce. Season with salt, pepper, paprika, turmeric, ginger, and olive oil. Spread 1 teaspoon of minced garlic on top. Finish by sprinkling with chopped, fresh parsley. Microwave on high for 5 and one-half minutes. When finished, test the center to be sure it is done. If not, replace in the microwave for 1 minute more.
4 – Serve the salmon and sauce hot, atop the Parmesan couscous.
