Glazed Salmon and Apple-Quinoa Salad

  1. Glazed Salmon and Apple-Quinoa Salad

    Currently my husband's (BigFish80) favorite meal. Awesome for post workout, loaded with complex carbs and lots of protein, not to mention good source of omega-3s and iron. Let me know what you think!

    (20 min meal)

    2 Salmon Fillets
    1 Tbsp dijon mustard
    1 Tbsp real maple syrup

    1 box of Quinoa spiral pasta (cooked, and rinsed cold)
    1 grannysmith apple (chopped)
    1 cucumber (chopped)
    3 cups of chopped fresh spinach leaves
    1 tsp dried dill

    1/8 cup Balsamic Vinegar
    2 Tbsp dijon mustard

    Preheat oven to 375.
    Mix mustard and syrup. Pour over salmon fillets on baking sheet. Bake 12 to 15 min until cooked through.

    Mix cooked, cold pasta with next 4 ingredients and toss. Mix Vinegar and mustard; pour over salad.

    Serve cooked salmon on top of salad.
    Less than 500 calories. 35-40 grams of protein (depending on size of salmon) 9 grams of fat (great source of unsaturated fats, omega-3s).

  2. Yes this dish is AWESOME! Currently my favorite dish for post workout. I'm not a big salad guy, but this dish ROCKS!!!
    I find myself picking at the leftovers whole next day too.
