This quick and easy recipe is many layers of goodness. It is healthy, relatively low in fat, gluten-free and is very heart healthy, full of omega-3 fatty acids from the salmon, a heart-healthy oily fish.
- 1 large can salmon (250g) or 2 cooked salmon fillets, deboned
- Bunch of baby spinach, approx 2 cups - washed and roughly torn
- 1 cup uncooked quinoa (any colour)
- 1 heaped Tspn ground sweet red paprika powder
- 16 asparagus spears
- 1/4 Tspn ground cumin
- 1/4 Tspn ground coriander
- 1/4 Tspn ground sweet red paprika powder
- 1/8 Tspn salt
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- Wash the asparagus spears and cut off the ends. Cut each asparagus spear into sections, julienne style (about 2-3 for each asparagus)
- Heat the oil in a stainless steel pain and add the cut asparagus spears and sweet paprika powder.
- Saute the asparagus spears and the paprika powder until they are all coated with the paprika - about 3-4 minutes. Add a bit more olive oil if necessary.
- Remove the asparagus from the heat and set aside, covered (to keep it warm).
- Meanwhile, wash the quinoa in cold water and drain.
- Cook the quinoa by adding it to 1.5 Litres of water, together with the other spices (cumin, coriander, paprika).
- Bring the quinoa to the boil and then simmer for about 10-15 minutes, or until completed cooked.
- Once the quinoa has been cooked, drain any excess water (if there is any) and set aside.
- To serve, add equal amounts of the salmon to each plate.
- Then add a layer of the spinach leaves - equal amounts on each plate.
- Then add a layer of the quinoa - equal emounts on each plate.
- Finally add the asparagus on top - equal amounts on each plate and serve.
To make the recipe vegan, omit the salmon and instead add 100g rice, plus a teaspoon each of sesame seeds and pecan nuts, plus a drizzle of tahini dressing - it will be a complete protein and really healthy.Advertisement
