This recipe is a full meal complete with salmon, creamy avocado mash, quinoa and a delicious sesame ginger sauce.



Meal Ingredients:

  •  1/2 cup uncooked quinoa (1 1/2 cups cooked)
  • 2 salmon filets (roughly 6 oz each)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cup shelled Edamame
  • 1/2 tbsp. lime juice
  • olive oil
  • salt

Sesame Ginger Sauce Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (or to taste)


  1. Make the Sesame Ginger Sauce by combing all sauce ingredients and mixing well with a fork or a whisk. Set aside.
  2. Cook quinoa (if not already done so) according to package instructions.
  3. Combine avocado, edamame, lime juice, and a pinch of salt in a blender, food processor, immersion blender, magic bullet, or whatever you have. Heck you could even try to mash it up by hand and I’m sure it would still be delicious.
  4. Season both sides of the salmon with salt and coat with olive oil. Place in preheated pan over medium heat (there should be immediate sizzle!). Cook on both sides for 3-4 minutes.
  5. Assemble! Place quinoa, salmon, and avocado/edamame mash on each plate. Stir the sauce and pour over the entire meal as desired!
