Ingredients

  • 2 4oz filets salmon
  • 1 head broccoli, chopped
  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ lemon, fresh squezed
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • salt+pepper
  • 4 4oz filets salmon
  • 2 heads broccoli, chopped
  • 2 heads cauliflower, chopped
  • 1 cup quinoa
Seasoning
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon, fresh squezed
  • 4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • salt+pepper

Equipment

  • pot
  • baking tray
  • stovetop
  • oven

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400° F
  2. While oven is heating up, start the quinoa. Combine 2 parts water with 1 part quinoa, bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and let simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Grab a baking tray, line with tinfoil or parchment paper (optional, but makes cleanup easier), and lightly coat with oil
  4. Chop the broccoli and cauliflower into bite-sized florets
  5. Place the chopped veggies and salmon skin-side down on the baking tray. Coat with olive oil, salt+pepper, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and any other spices calling your name
  6. 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.
  7. Plate the quinoa, veggies, and salmon together and finish with a big squeeze of fresh lemon. A little soy sauce on the quinoa and veggies can do wonders, and if you like things extra spicy, a little sriracha will work great. Enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

  • 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.
