Seared Salmon and Quinoa

With Mediterranean Cucumber Salad and Homemade Dukkah


It's hard to go wrong with a dish that revolves around Salmon! Salmon appears regularly in nutrient-rich dishes because it's a fantastic source of healthy fats (including the ever sought after omega 3s), protein, and B Vitamins.

We have brought this one to the next level by including a variety of plant-based superfoods (including nuts, seeds and grains) and our very own Vegetable Broth, which adds flavour and a hit of B vitamins, calcium and zinc. Quinoa is featured for its complete protein profile, Magnesium and Manganese, Buckwheat is a great source of Niacin and Magnesium, Sunflower kernels contain high levels of Magnesium, Vitamin B6, and Iron, and Pepitas are a great source of healthy fats and Magnesium.
