Salmon with Quinoa and Toasted Seeds

Salmon with Quinoa and Toasted Seeds

  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth or water
  • 1/2 cup quinoa, soak for up to 2 hours before cooking and rinse well with a fine strainer
  • 1 generous handful of spinach, optional
  • 1 generous handful of bean sprouts, optional
  • 2 tbsp greek yoghurt, optional
  • 2 salmon filets, deboned & without skin, diced
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil (1 tbsp for salmon and 2 tbsp for sautéeing vegetables & seeds)
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp continental parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp coriander, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp honey
  1. Bring 1 1/2-2 cups water or broth to a boil; add 1/2 cup of quinoa. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until the liquid has been absorbed, 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Add spinach and bean sprouts to the quinoa and stir. Place lid on pot to allow the vegetables to steam lightly. Makes 1 cup.
  2. Meanwhile, to prepare the salmon, remove ALL bones, skin and dice in 1-inch pieces with a sharp knife. Usually the skin and bones will be removed beforehand by your fishmonger.
  3. Add 1 tbsp coconut oil to a heated pan. Add salmon and toss until cooked to your liking. Remove from heat and cool.
  4. In the same frying pan, add 2 tbsp coconut oil and add the celery, onion, parsley, coriander and mint. Sauté for about 4 minutes stirring constantly. Do not brown. Add all seeds, salt, pepper, chilli and continue cooking for a further 2 minutes. Add honey and stir. Add salmon to the mixture to reheat.
  5. Distribute 1 cup of quinoa evenly between two plates. Divide salmon mixture and gently pour over quinoa. Top with 1 tbsp greek yoghurt, if desired.
