Prepare the Ingredients  

  • Lightly salt the salmon.  
  • Wash and dry the arugula or spinach.  
  • Crumble the feta.  

Make the Quinoa  

  • Rinse the quinoa in a fine sieve and add it to a small pot with 1 ½ cups water. Bring to a boil.  

boil quinoa with water

  • Once boiling, reduce the heat to simmer and cook, covered, until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed, about 10-15 minutes.  

Cook the Salmon  

  • Over medium-high heat, coat a skillet with 1 tbsp. olive oil. 
  • Once the oil begins to crackle, add the salmon, skin side down.

  • Cook until the skin begins to loosely lift, about 6-8 minutes. At this point, it should be easy to slip a spatula under the salmon.  
  • Flip the salmon and cook for a remaining 3-5 minutes, or until the inside is no longer bright pink.
