It is not that long time ago I have prepared quinoa salad with salmon. And yesterday, quick dinner again. This time it was avocado – quinoa salad with steamed cod seasoned with mixture of herbs. We love avocado at home and eat it really a lot, with almost everything and not just because it is from Mexico 😛 Have you known that the avocado is a tree originated in South Central Mexico?
Avocado (also alligator pear) refers to the tree’s fruit, which is botanically a large berry containing a single large seed.
What do you need for 4 people
800 g salmon
2 handfuls lettuce
lemon juice from 1 lemon
1 cup of mixed quinoa (white, red and black)
salt and pepper
fresh herbs – basil, mint, parsley
sweet paprika powder, chili flakes, cayenne pepper, mustard seeds
Take a pot, add cup quinoa, water and bring it to boil. When is quinoa getting ready, season cod with fresh herbs (chopped basil, mind and parsley) and mixture of 1 tsp of sweet paprika powder, 1 tsp of chili flakes, 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper and 1/2 tsp of mustard seeds. Then I used steam cooker for the cod preparation and the whole process takes about 15 minutes. It is amazing thing. In the meantime, chop all vegetables, put them into big bowl with 2 spoons of olive oil. Add salt and pepper according to your taste. At the end, take a big pan and when quinoa was ready, place it there, add chopped vegetables and mix it properly. When ready, serve in on plates with steamed cod on top and 1 avocado per person (dish). To finalize, sprinkle the cod with fresh lemon juice. Easy, quick and delicious salad!
