Rosemary Salmon with Quinoa and Mango Salsa

This recipe is simple, healthy and protein-packed. It combines mildly sweet, savory, nutty and tangy flavors. It’s a nice meal to enjoy on a warm summer evening.

What you need.

  • quinoa
  • salmon
  • 2 sprigs of rosemary
  • 1 TBSP butter
  • mango, diced
  • avocado, diced
  • diced red pepper
  • red onion, minced
  • parsley (or cilantro)
  • fresh lemon juice

How you make it.

  1. Start off by cooking your quinoa, according to instructions. (For nice fluffy quinoa, cover the pot with a top and simmer on low).
  2. While your quinoa is cooking, prepare your salsa. Mix mango, avocado, red pepper, onion, herbs and lemon juice (1 TBSP for 2 servings)
  3. Season your salmon with thyme, salt and pepper. Place butter in a pan and melt, throw in rosemary sprigs, add salmon on top of rosemary and cook on medium-high until 1/2 way cooked and golden brown. Flip salmon and do the same for the opposite side.

Enjoy!
