Recipe Of The Week: Quinoa And Baked Salmon

18th April 2016

This week my sister and I made this delicious twenty minute meal. Salmon not only is a great source of protein, it is rich in essential fatty acids and keeps you full for longer. It’s the perfect recipe for Summer days (I just can’t help but have that summer feelin’ even if the temperatures are not quite high enough). I love it that this recipe is just so quick and really easy to make. At the end of the day it’s all about keeping it simple and super tasty 😉


1 Salmon fillet

1 Cup of cooked quinoa

1/2  Small cup of frozen peas

1/2  Small cup of edamame beans

1 Garlic clove finely chopped

1/2  Shallot finely chopped

5 Cherry tomatoes chopped in quarters

A handful of parsley finely chopped

Olive oil

Himalayan salt and pepper
