Servings 4 servings
- 1/4 cup peanut oil
- 2 tablespoons shredded ginger
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
- 3 green onions thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 4 salmon filets
- salt and black pepper
- 1 cucumber seeded and thinly sliced
- 1 small red onion thinly sliced (I used pickled red onions)

Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add the ginger and the garlic and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the quinoa and cook, stirring for about 10 minutes or until it's lightly toasted. Add the green onions and soy sauce and toss to combine.
While the quinoa is cooking, heat the rest of the oil in a medium frying pan over high heat. Cook the salmon for 3-5 minutes per side to your desired degree of doneness. Divide the quinoa and the salmon between 4 plates. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add the cucumber and red onions and basil. Serve with a lime wedge.
