    This was delicious and extremely simple. I would definitely make it again. Seemed like more than the sum of its parts. Following @TrishaCP's comment about the couscous cooking unevenly, I made sure to distribute it very evenly in the pan, and I also left it soaking in the stock for a little while as I prepared the salmon. This seemed to do the trick and it all cooked through.

    This was very flavorful and certainly really simple. It has never occurred to me to put pesto on top of fish and then bake, but I will certainly do this again. The one flaw, and it may have been execution on our part, was that the couscous was unevenly cooked. Some of it was mushy, and some was just fine.
