Lemon Salmon with Quinoa

As of late, my home meals have been visually bland and nothing extravagant.

Chicken, beef tossed in with quinoa or couscous. It’s easy, and satisfying. However, I’ve been trying to incorporate more fish in my diet. I never was a seafood person, but salmon seems to hit the spot without an issue.

I prepared this salmon with sea salt and pepper. Drizzled with fresh squeezed lemon juice. Prep skillet with olive oil and seared the salmon on both sides. Cook until firm, but not too firm! This can can be observed with a finger poke – probably takes 6 minutes each side with medium heat. You can always take a fork see if the meat can be teased apart without difficulty. Too flaky and I consider it overcooked. Remove from heating element/flame and let it rest for a few minutes.

Prepared simultaneously, I boil the quinoa and drain as necessary and heat it up again to dry it. Olive oil, onions and mushrooms are tossed in a pan to cook. I cheated and used canned black beans with no salt.
