Time for dinner. I knew we had some salmon, but what to go with it? Salad? Ugh, nope I wanted something different.
Yup this is one of those meals that came together and ended with “Yup that’s a keeper!”
So I thought I’d start off the new year by sharing a great recipe that’s super easy to put together!
Butter Poached Salmon with Quinoa, Spinach and Tangy Chili Salsa
Tangy Chili Salsa (recipe here)
1 cup Quinoa
1 cup Water
2 Salmon filets
2 Tbsp Butter
Handful of Spinach
Handful of Nuts (pecans, walnuts – optional)
1. Make Tangy Chili Sauce. Once all the ingredients are added (minus the balsamic vinegar which is added at the end) add quinoa and hot water. Stir and let simmer for 20-25 min.
2. About 10 min before the quinoa is done, heat up a sauce pan to a medium heat. Add butter. Cook salmon filets for on each side for 3-5 min depending on your preference. Take off heat.
3. Take quinoa mixture off heat and add spinach. Stir until wilted.
4. Spoon quinoa mixture onto plate and top with salmon filet.
