with sugar snap peas & quinoa

Active: 30 min Total: 30 min
A simple vinaigrette is a great way to add flavor to salmon. The addition of sauted green onions provide sweetness and zest. Paired with sweet and crunchy sugar snap peas and quinoa, we have ourselves a tasty and balanced meal.


Simple Sauteed Sugar Snap Peas:
  • Sugar snap peas - 3/4 lb , trimmed
  • Oil, cooking - 2 tsp
Seared & Roasted Salmon:
  • Quinoa - 1 cup , dry
  • Salmon fillets (4 to 6 oz) - 4 fillets
  • Green onions - 2 stalks , chopped
  • Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp + 1 Tbsp
  • Vinegar, rice - 2 Tbsp
  • Vinegar, white wine - 1 Tbsp
  • Oil, olive - 3 Tbsp


  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). Otherwise Combine quinoa with 1 3/4 cups (411 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. Salmon - Rinse and dry fish. Salt & pepper
  3. Green onions - Prep as directed
  4. Sugar snap peas - Trim off ends (give your kids a pair of scissors and get them trimming!).
