  • 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)
  • 1 cup basil leaves (I omitted)
  • lime wedge to serve


  • 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.
