Honey-Lime Salmon
with quinoa salad

Active: 15 min Total: 35 min

Sweet and tart honey and lime infuse great flavors into this salmon dish. We love this sauce so much that we also use it to dress our quinoa salad, which saves you time. Vegetarians will marinade tofu in this same dressing for a delicious treat.

Prep

  1. Quinoa - If you're making tomorrow night's meal, make both nights worth of quinoa tonight (2 cups (472 ml) quinoa + 3 1/2 cups (823 ml) of water). If not, just combine tonight's portion with 1 3/4 cups (176 ml) of water. Add in a generous dash of salt. Bring to a boil covered. Lower heat, keep covered, and cook until liquid is absorbed, 8 to 10 minutes
  2. Green onions - Slice for both quinoa and salmon, keeping white and green parts separated
  3. Make dressing - Mix honey, lime juice, white parts of green onions, a pinch of salt, and oil
  4. Salmon - Rinse and dry. Pour 2 1/2 tbs. (37 ml) of dressing over fish

Not bad. The salmon didn't cook all the way using the broiler method so still had to cook it for about 10 more minutes in the oven. Kept everything else as on the recipe

It was really good. We made a different salad that we like, spinach w/Gouda and apples and a homemade honey mustard dressing.

Salad dressing wasn't great. Ended up tossing it and making own concoction

Not bad salmon wise (not the greatest but decent). Thought the salad was a little too sweet.

The quinoa was the best part-- tangy and fresh. However, there was barely enough of the quinoa for 2 adults and a toddler for the old format standard recipe, so one may want to increase the amounts.
