1 cup dried quinoa

1 lb salmon filet, skinless and cut into ½ inch cubes

¼ cup soy sauce

2 tbsp rice vinegar

2 tsp minced garlic

1 tbsp honey

1 tsp cornstarch

1 tbsp vegetable oil

23 green onions, minced

½ cucumber, quartered

2 carrots, julienned

1 avocado, thinly sliced

1 jalapeno, thinly sliced (optional)


Cook quinoa: Prepare the quinoa according to package instructions. Fluffy with a fork and set aside.

Make salmon marinade: While the quinoa is cooking, place salmon, soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, honey and cornstarch into a medium bowl. Mix gently until well combined.

Cook salmon: Heat a non-stick skillet on medium-high heat with vegetable oil. Add the marinated salmon pieces and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until the salmon is just cooked through and the sauce has thickened. Gently move the pieces as the salmon pieces will be fragile.

Arrange bowls: Divide quinoa and salmon pieces into two bowls. Top with green onions, cucumbers, carrots, ½ avocado and jalapeno slices, if desired. Enjoy!
