I don’t know about you, but I’ve’ve decked the halls and fa-la-la-la-la’d enough.
I’m ready to put all those healthy eating New Year’s resolutions into action.
As we all know by now, sacrificing fat and calories doesn’t mean sacrificing flavor. This salmon dish is rich and flavorful but a lot better for you than cookie dough truffles or lasagna.
So, if you’re staying in tonight with your sweetie, take care of his or her heart in more ways than one with this delicious dish.
Salmon Quinoa Bowls
1 lb salmon fillet
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp ground sage
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
2 ripe avocados
1 lime, juiced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp red onion, chopped
1 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
1 cup uncooked red quinoa
1 (14 oz) can garbanzo beans
6 flour tortillas
Place your oven on the high broil setting. Put the salmon fillet in a casserole dish or on a baking sheet.
Sprinkle the seasonings onto the salmon fillet and gently pat into the flesh. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until fish is cooked through.
While the fish is cooking, prepare the quinoa and heat up the garbanzo beans.
In a small bowl, mash together all of the ingredients for the guacamole.
Assemble burrito bowls by placing a flour tortilla into a bowl and pressing lightly. Then, build salad on top of the tortilla, compiling desired amount of quinoa, garbanzo beans, salmon and guacamole.
