Salmon With Lemon-Cilantro VinaigretteBy Jose Picayo
Serves 4
Hands-on Time: 15m
Total Time: 20m

  • 1 10-ounce box quinoa seeds (1 1/2 cups) **(I changed this from couscous)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 skinless salmon fillet (1 1/4 pounds), cut into 4 portions
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1. Cook the quinoa according to the package directions.
2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
3. Season the salmon with the paprika, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook until opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
4. In a bowl, combine the cilantro, scallions, lemon juice, remaining oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Drizzle over the salmon and quinoa. 

Tip: To get more juice from a lemon, roll it on the counter a few times before squeezing.
