Ingredients

Quinoa

  • 1 cup quinoa uncooked, rinsed

Sweet Chili Salmon

  • 4 4 oz salmon fillets
  • ¼ cup chili garlic sauce
  • 2 tbsp less-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp pure raw honey
  • 1 tbsp sriracha sauce
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 garlic cloves minced (or 1 tsp minced garlic from a jar)

Roasted Veggies

  • 2 cups sugar snap peas
  • 2 heads broccoli roughly 4 cups, cut into florets
  • 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp less-sodium soy sauce
  • Garlic powder and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cook quinoa according to package instructions.
  • While quinoa is cooking, heat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

Salmon:

  • Whisk together the chili garlic sauce, soy sauce, honey, sriracha, water and minced garlic in a small bowl. 
  • Spray an 8×8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray, and place the salmon in the dish. Spoon 1-2 tbsp of the sauce on top of each piece of salmon, until the top of it is coated. (Reserve some sauce to add the dish after cooking. Leaving too much sauce in bottom of the pan may result it in burning and going to waste.)
  • Once oven is preheated, place 8×8 pan with salmon in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through (minimum internal temperature of 145 F). You can wait and cook salmon at the same time as the veggies.

Roasted Veggies:

  • Place chopped broccoli and snap peas in a large bowl. Toss with olive oil and soy sauce until lightly coated. Lightly season with garlic powder and black pepper to taste, and toss until seasonings are evenly distributed.
  • Transfer veggies to prepped baking sheet covered with parchment paper (or foil, as pictured).
  • Place in the oven and roast for 10-15 minutes, remove from oven, flip veggies over, and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes, until tender and slightly browned.

To serve:

  • Spoon extra sauce from the bowl and/or pan over the salmon and veggies.

Notes

Enjoy with your whole family or save the leftovers to bring for lunch the next day or two! This dish tastes just as good reheated.
