Hi, looking for a side dish to complement cedar plank brown sugar salmon. No potatoes or green beans please, looking for something with a twist. thx

I'm a little late as usual, but I usually like greens, like pea shoots or broccolini, sautéed with garlic and oil, seasoned with salt and pepper.

How about an Israeli couscous salad? You could dress it with an arugula pistou or simply a little olive oil and lemon juice, and add whatever veg you like to it. (P.S. Cook the couscous in stock and it will be even more flavorful.)
