  • 4
    Salmon fillets
  • 1/4 Teaspoon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon
    Black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon
    Olive oil
  • 1 Cup
  • 2 Cups
    Vegetable broth
  • 1
    Diced onion
  • 2
    Cloves of minced garlic
  • 1
    Diced bell pepper
  • 1
    Diced zucchini
  • 1/4 Cup
    Chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Teaspoons
    Lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C)

  2. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper.

  3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the salmon fillets and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown.

  4. Transfer the salmon to a baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until cooked through.
    Meanwhile, rinse the quinoa in a fine mesh strainer and drain.

  5. In a saucepan, bring the vegetable broth to a boil. Add the quinoa and return to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 18-20 minutes, or until the quinoa is cooked and the broth is absorbed.

  6. In the same skillet, sauté the onion, garlic, bell pepper, and zucchini until they are tender. Stir in the cooked quinoa, parsley, and lemon juice.

  7. Serve the baked salmon with the vegetable quinoa on the side.
