Pan Seared Salmon with Quinoa and Roasted Broccoli

Ingredients:

2 large fillets of fresh Salmon

Sea Salt

Fresh ground Black Pepper

Dried Dill

Pam Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray

1 cup of Quinoa

(1 )12 ounce bag of fresh Broccoli Florets

2 cloves of Garlic minced

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Directions:

Roasted Broccoli

Pre heat oven to 350, and prepare the broccoli florets by spreading them out on a baking sheet.  Drizzle just enough extra virgin olive oil to coat the broccoli (you don’t need much).  Sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper.  Add the minced garlic, and toss everything together until it’s all evenly coated.  Place in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes.

Pan Seared Salmon

Make sure to safely remove the skin of the Salmon fillets if needed.  If you are wary about doing this, you can ask the fishmonger to do it for you when you purchase it.  Cut the fillets in half, so that you have 4 altogether.  Sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper and dill on each side.   Preheat a pan skillet on medium high heat and spray with Pam.  When it is hot enough place the Salmon in, and let it cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side only flipping one time (this will ensure a crispy crust).  Depending on how thick your Salmon is you might have to transfer it to your already preheated oven for an extra 5-10 minutes if it’s not cooked all the way through.

Quinoa
