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

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

    Salad:
    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.
