- 15 mins
- 25 mins
- 2 4oz filets salmon
- 1 head broccoli
- 1 head cauliflower
- salad greens
- 1/2 cup quinoa
- 4 4oz filets salmon
- 2 heads broccoli
- 2 heads cauliflower
- salad greens
- baking tray
- Heat oven to 400 F
- While oven is heating up, start the quinoa. Combine 2 parts liquid with 1 part quinoa, bring to a boil, (optional: add butter, salt, spices), reduce heat to low, cover and let simmer for 15 minutes.
- Grab a baking tray, line with tinfoil or parchment paper (optional, but makes cleanup easier), and lightly coat with oil
- Chop the broccoli and cauliflower into bite-sized florets
- Place the chopped veggies and salmon skin-side down on the baking tray. Coat with olive oil, salt+pepper, and any other spices calling your name
- Cook in the oven for about 12-15 minutes. The salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork, and the veggies are done when they are golden brown. If necessary, feel free to let the veggies cook a little extra longer after you take the salmon out.
- While the salmon and veggies are cooking, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl or cup, combine equal parts sriracha, soy sauce, and honey and whisk together. When the salmon and veggies are almost done cooking, pour the sauce over them.
- Plate the quinoa, veggies, and salmon together and finish with sweet chili sauce + soy sauce to taste. If you like things spicy, a little sriracha can do wonders. Enjoy!
- Don't be afraid to cook extra quinoa! It keeps great in the fridge and is the perfect base for a quick meal or snack.
- For super flavorful quinoa, use broth instead of water for cooking. Any type of broth will work - beef, chicken, veggie. You can use all broth, but we find equal parts broth and water usually works best. So if you're cooking 1 cup of quinoa, use 1 cup of broth and 1 cup of water. We also love putting a bit of butter and salt in there, and a little garlic powder never hurt no one.
- If you like your veggies extra crispy, feel free to let them cook a little longer after you take out the salmon.
