BBQ Salmon with Zesty Quinoa Salad

Horseradish and salmon are a classic match, made even more flavorful by adding Halo+Cleaver Gold Mustard BBQ Sauce. All that added flavor with virtually no extra calories and zero added sugar!! Just slather a mixture of our Gold Mustard BBQ Sauce and prepared horseradish on the fleshy side of salmon filets and pop in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes. This salad comes together quickly and makes a colorful, crunchy base for the yummy salmon. 


How to Keep Salmon Moist

While it may seem daunting to cook fish, it really is quite simple. Salmon is a great addition to any menu and is an excellent source of Omega-3s, an essential fatty acid, high in protein and low in saturated fat. We are oven roasting it here - at 400o F - but you could also grill it. Place it skin side down (even if the skin is already removed) and brush the top with the BBQ Sauce/horseradish mixture, sealing in moisture. Follow the Canadian rule for timing: cook any fish for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, measured at the thickest point. 

Making a Tasty Quinoa Salad

Quinoa (prounced keen-wah) is an ancient grain dating back 5000 years to the Andes, and called a "mother grain" by the Incans. It's a great way to add a whole grain food without adding gluten - high in both protein and fiber. We have dressed it with a simple lemon vinaigrette and tossed in some crunchy, sweet, and creamy fruits and veg to make it a zesty vibrant salad. It is the perfect counter to the richness of salmon. Get creative with your add ins, but we like red cabbage, mandarin oranges, avocados and fresh herbs. Garnish with some toasted sunflower seeds. 

This all comes together in 30 minutes and is a tasty, colorful way to bring healthy choices to mealtime.
