Happy Friday guys! I’ve been craving some restaurant style salmon for a while, so I figured I’d give myself just that! Salmon is packed with protein and omega 3 fatty acids which are both equally important for building and maintaining muscle, healthy brain function, and even healthy skin! There are so many ways you can season your salmon while preserving its nutrition because it is quite diverse, so play with your flavors and have a blast. I wish you all a fantastic weekend!

Recipe:

1lb wild salmon fillet
1/3 cup organic whole grain quinoa (cooked and seasoned)
1 scallion (chopped)
5 grape tomatoes (chopped)
1 tsp. organic raw honey (or maple syrup)
1 tsp. ginger (grated)
1 tsp. organic low sodium coconut aminos
A dash of salt and pepper to taste

Mix all seasoning ingredients together and rub it on your salmon, then place it in a ziplock bag and let it marinate for 10-15 minutes.

In the meantime, cook your quinoa. Boil raw quinoa in a skillet over medium heat with 1/2 a cup of water for 15 minutes or until fully cooked. Transfer cooked quinoa into a skillet heated with a 1 tbsp. olive oil and sauté with scallions, tomatoes, and seasonings of choice. Sauté for exactly 1 minute, then set aside.

Set your oven settings to broil and line a baking sheet with foil paper lightly greased with olive oil.

Place marinated salmon on the baking sheet and place in the oven. Broil salmon for 10-12 minutes.

Make your plate when ready, and serve with a side salad if you prefer.
