Ingredients

Scale
  • 300g/10.5 oz salmon fillet
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 head (4 cups/ 260g) broccoli florets, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped herbs (mint, parsley)

  1. If using raw quinoa, cook 1 cup of uncooked quinoa grains according to package instructions.

  3. While the quinoa is cooking, finely chop the broccoli florets, grate the carrot, chop the onion, and herbs.
