WHAT YOU NEED

  • 2 salmon fillets (4.4 oz. /125g each)

  • 3.5 oz. (100g) quinoa, cooked

  • 1 zucchini

  • 1/2 tbsp. olive oil

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

Salmon Marinade:

  • 2 tbsp. tamari

  • ½ tbsp. olive oil

  • ½ tsp. sweet paprika

  • ½ tsp. hot paprika

  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar

  • 1 tsp honey

  • 1 tbsp. black sesame seeds

  • Chilli flakes, to taste 2.5oz (70g) sundried tomatoes, rinsed, chopped


WHAT YOU NEED TO DO

  • Mix together the ingredients of the marinade and cover the salmon to marinate for about 1 hour.

  • While the salmon is marinating, cook the quinoa and spiralize the zucchini.

  • Heat the oil in the pan, add the crushed garlic and fry for 1-2 minutes. Add in the zoodles and stir occasionally until it softens, but still firm, for about 3-4 minutes. Towards the end add the chopped tomatoes, and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  • Heat the oven to 480F (250C) and place the salmon on a baking tray or casserole dish. Bake for about 7 minutes.

  • Remove the salmon from the oven to rest for a moment, and in the meantime pour in the salmon juices into the quinoa, mixing well.

  • Divide the quinoa and zoodles between two plates, then place the salmon on top, sprinkle with chili flakes, to serve.
