Fruity Quinoa and Grilled Salmon
Fruit, clean and lean! This Fruity Quinoa and Grilled Salmon meal prep brings together all the best sweet and savory flavors!
Cut salmon fillet into 4 pieces, wash with cold water, season with salt. In a non-stick grill pan over medium heat cook salmon fillets abut 5 minutes each sides. ( get rid of the skin after cooking. It is too fatty! ) Serve 125 g for each container.
Bring water to a boil in a pot and boil as much as quinoa you like. ( I always cook extra and put the remaining quinoa in the freezer to use later in salads, omelette, oatmeal etc.. ) Drain, measure with 1/2 cup for each container. Chop one scallion for each container and mix fruits evenly.
Wash green cauliflower, cut into large pieces. Place a strainer over a pot filled with 1 inch water (shallow enough that the water doesn’t touch the strainer). Place chopped cauliflower florets in the strainer and cover with a lid. Steam as tender as you like.
Serve everything in containers with 1/4 lemon. Before you eat, microwave only salmon and cauliflower (if you like) in another plate. Squeeze lemon on all ingredients 🙂
