Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Peel, halve, and finely chop the shallot. Finely chop the walnuts.

Toss the broccoli on one side of a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Place in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown and slightly crispy.

Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a small pot over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook, tossing for 4 to 5 minutes, until softened. Add 1½ cups water and the stock concentrate and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the couscous, cover, and set aside off the heat.

In a small bowl, combine the panko, chopped walnuts, and 1 teaspoon oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Remove the baking sheet from the oven. Place the salmon on the opposite side of the baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Evenly coat each salmon fillet with the Dijon mustard. Press the panko mixture on top of each fillet and place in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until the salmon is opaque in the center and the broccoli is golden brown.
