Recipe type: Healthy
Cuisine: Asian
Ingredients
  • 3-4 salmon fillets, 6-8oz each
  • Juice of 2 oranges or ½ cup of orange juice, but fresh is always best in my book
  • 2oz fresh sliced ginger or 1 ½ tbsp. ginger paste
  • 1 tbsp. crushed garlic
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup avocado oil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ black pepper
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients in large Ziploc bag and marinade 2 hours in refrigerator. In large baking dish, spray avocado oil, place salmon skin down and pour remaining marinade from bag. Pre-heat oven at 350˚ F and bake salmon for 20-25 minutes. The marinade will caramelize to a brown glaze from the sugars of the syrup and orange juice. Brush the glaze over the top of salmon for a richer flavor.
  2. Crispy Quinoa:
  3. If you never cooked quinoa before it’s just like cooking rice, 1 part quinoa 2 parts water. For 1 cup quinoa add 2 cups water. In small saucepan, bring to a boil and then simmer for 12 minutes. Bring it up a notch and fry your quinoa in avocado oil for a crispy nuttier flavor. Add 1 tbsp. of avocado oil per ½ cup of cooked quinoa in a pan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Toss in your salad, cut up some sliced oranges and drizzle the left over glaze from your salmon pan
