Salmon with Asian Quinoa

So, I have been very impressed lately with the dedication, hard work, and results I have seen in workout lately. I just wanted to say Thank you to all the members who make this program so amazing.... and worth waking up at 4:30 am every morning,  just sayin'. That is quite an accomplishment for me to stick to for so long AND I just love it. Wait....yep, I just felt my forehead and it feels normal!!! No temperature. :)

OK, we are here to talk about food right?!?  Here is what's on the menu over at casa de Team[FIT]....

Feeds 3


12 oz Wild Caught Salmon
1 cup Quinoa
3/4 cup frozen vegetable medley
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 tbsp minced garlic
cajun seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups Chicken broth or water for Quinoa

Prepare Quinoa as directed on package or follow below:

1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat and preheat your grill for the salmon. Stir in quinoa and allow to toast for 2 to 3 minutes, then add chicken broth (or water) and half of your soy sauce. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. 

2. Simmer until all liquid has been almost absorbed, then toss in your vegetable medley. toss in the rest of your soy sauce and add salt and pepper to taste until the liquid is fully absorbed and you can fluff your quinoa with a fork.

3. While your Quinoa is simmering, prep your salmon. Spray lightly with olive oil and rub your minced garlic over top. Then sprinkle your desired amount of seasoning over top; cajun, pepper, etc. ** NO salt.  Added sodium is unnecessary to out diets!

4. When your grill has reached the necessary heat, place your salmon on the grill for about 5-6 minutes on each side. ** Don't forget to spray your grill with olive oil before you place your salmon down so it doesn't stick.

Added bonus: as you can see, I added a little bit of extra to my quinoa. We had some leftover veggies from last night's dinner; I tossed in some extra broccoli and asparagus!!
