Limone is Italian for lemon, so you know this fish dish is going to have some vitamin-C-packing sour power. But that’s only the start of it: there are veggies and herbs and beautiful fillets, too. Bubbly Israeli couscous is toasted and simmered with a little butter. Then the salmon is dusted with our Italian seasoning and seared in the pan. But the real showstopper might be the zucchini ribbon salad, which is a pretty as it is delightfully refreshing (and fun to twirl around your fork).

Meanwhile, using a peeler, shave zucchini lengthwise into ribbons, rotating until you get to the seedy core; discard core. Zest lemon, then cut in half; cut one half into 2 wedges. Place scallion greens, tomato, and zucchini in a medium bowl. Add a large drizzle of olive oil and squeeze in juice from lemon half. Toss to combine and season with salt and pepper.

Arrange salmon on top of couscous on plates. Spoon over veggies. In a small bowl, stir together reserved lemon zest, sour cream, salt, and pepper; add a splash or two of water as needed to give mixture a loose, drizzly consistency. Drizzle mixture over everything. Serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over.
