Now onto the salmon…

Pan sear(ious) salmon

If you’re not a cooking enthusiast, we know that cooking fish at home might be a little intimidating. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there! The key to getting juicy and savory salmon is to cook it on a well heated pan with the right amount of oil. Make sure to place the salmon filets with the skin side-down. The skin will provide a safety shield between the skillet and the meat.

The goal when cooking salmon is for it to be tender rather than dry. You will know the fish is done if it’s easy to lift with a spatula and slightly lighter in pink color. Keep an eye on it, and when you think it has reached the desired cook, try carefully lifting a corner of the filet.

Sweet Chili Glaze

Sauces and glazes blend all ingredients together and help avoid a boring taste. Made with few ingredients and in just one easy step, the sweet chili sauce can transform the vegetables and quinoa and elevate this dish to the next level. Believe us when we say that this Asian-inspired glaze is a game changer.

We always recommend to stick to the cooking instructions and ingredient measurements but, if you’re in the mood for a saucier meal, drizzle with some extra sauce. For an even spicier taste, double up on the recommended serving of hot chili sauce.
