SALMON & QUINOA

(DF, GF)

This tasty and easy to prepare dish is a nutrient rich meal that can be served hot or cold.  Ideally, salmon should be wild caught (all Australian salmon is farmed thus resulting in lower omega 3's) .... but I know that this is not always possible, practical or probable - but we ARE striving for the best quality we can!

​​Ingredients

  • Salmon - this is based on how many people you are serving, your preferred portion size - and your budget

  • 1 x teaspoon apple cider vinegar 

  • 1 x lemon for juicing 

  • 1 x lemon cut into wedges (or more) to serve on the side

  • 1 x cup of quinoa ('keen-wa') (when cooked this serves about 3)

  • 1-2 x tablespoons of virgin olive oil or coconut oil

  • 1-2 x garlic cloves

  • 1 x cup snow peas 

  • 1 x capsicum - chopped

  • 1x broccoli head cut into florets or bunch of broccolini 

  • salt & pepper to season

 

Instructions

  1. pre-heat on oven to 200 degrees celsius

  2. line a baking tray with non-bleached baking paper

  3. soak quinoa in water for 20mins with teaspoon of apple cider vinegar

  4. crush garlic cloves and mix with olive oil or coconut oil

  5. place salmon in bowl and put garlic oil mix over 

  6. squeeze 1/2 lemon over salmon and let is sit for 5minutes

  7. cook the quinoa (this takes about 12minutes - when the seeds are curly it's ready!)

  8. place the salmon (skin down) on baking tray and pour oil/garlic mix over it

  9. turn over down to 180degrees and place salmon into oven for 20mins (less if you like it rare)

  10. steam the broccoli or broccolini

  11. blanch snow peas

  12. when the quinoa is cooked, strain 

  13. remove salmon from oven

To serve you can either place quinoa onto a plate with greens on the side and sprinkled with fresh chopped capsicum OR gently toss all of the ingredients together before serving. Add salt & pepper and lemon juice to taste.

This dish can be eaten hot, or cooled and refrigerated for the next day.
