Description

Grilled salmon served over optional quinoa ( or rice) with greens, grilled vegetables, fresh veggies and  Tzatziki Sauce. Feel free to substitute chicken or tofu for the salmon ( see notes). If going grain-free, leave out the quinoa and add more grilled veggies.

  • olive oil for brushing
  • salt and pepper
  • one lemon- sliced in half

Optional Bowl Additions:

Cooked Quinoa or rice, arugula or other greens, grilled veggies like tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, or zucchini.

Add any fresh veggies you like- radishes, cucumber, tomatoes, sprouts

Garnish with olive oil, lemon, and fresh herbs.


Instructions

Preheat heat grill to medium high.

Set 1 cup quinoa or rice to cook on the stove, according to directions.  (Quinoa only takes 15-20 minutes)

Brush salmon with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Make the optional  Tzatziki Sauce, or use store-bought.

Place salmon on the grill, along with any other veggies you choose to grill ( brush with olive oil, salt and pepper). Grill salmon on both sides for 3-4 minutes, shorter or longer depending on thickness of the cut. Grill the lemon, open side down, until good grill marks appear. (You will use the grilled lemon to squeeze over the salmon be fore serving.)

When veggies and salmon are done, assemble the 2 bowls.

Divide quinoa among two bowls. Top with a handful of greens. Add  any fresh veggies you like and drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Arrange the grilled vegetables and salmon over top. Squeeze the grilled lemon over the whole  bowl. Spoon a few generous spoonfuls of tzatziki sauce over top the salmon. Scatter with fresh dill or other herbs.

Pour your self a glass of white wine. Enjoy.


Notes

Feel free to substitute grilled chicken or tofu for the salmon, adjusting grilling times. Leave the grains off if going grain-free and add more grilled veggies.

Try grilling half lemons, using them to garnish the finished dish.

You can also bake the salmon 350 or 375 F  10-15 minutes depending on thickness and desired done-nesss.

The tzatziki serves 6-8, while the bowls serve 2- so you will have extra tzatziki to spoon into wraps and over salads during the week.
