Quinoa (pronounced “keen-wah”) is a whole grain with origins in South America. We have combined it in this recipe with black beans, savory vegetables, and spices for a cold or warm salad that is light and refreshing. This salad is high in protein and can be served as a main with your favorite seafood, or side dish.
It’s time to fire up your grill and get ready we’re cooking up one of the wild kings of freshwater protein; the almighty (and wonderfully fatty) salmon. But don’t think the fish gets all the glory in this delicious slimmer dinner recipe, it’s also really all about the pairing sauces. You’ll have your choice between a Smoky Sriracha or Pineapple Glaze to satisfy your spicy or sweet craving. The good news? Whichever sauce you choose, you really can’t go wrong!
Man, what a savory side dish! Quinoa I like to describe it as “its own little ecosystem, containing all of the essential amino acids that we must obtain through the diet.” This dish’s texture provides interesting mouth feel and layers of flavors (citrus, mint, cumin, coriander) that will excite the taste buds and making you want more!
