Ingredients (organic/biodynamic):

  • 2 salmon fillets (or other line-caught deep-water fish)
  • 1/3 c. coconut aminos
  • 2 dates, pitted
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. each of onion powder, red pepper flakes, and smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. fresh grated ginger
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 c. quinoa
  • 1 c. steamed broccoli florets
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Add the coconut aminos, dates, water, garlic cloves, onion powder, smoked paprika, grated ginger, red pepper flakes, and black pepper to a small blender, and blend to create the sauce.
  2. Place salmon fillets in a glass dish, cover with sauce, and marinate for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Thoroughly rinse the quinoa under cold water. Place rinsed quinoa in a medium saucepan with 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook approximately 15 minutes, until the water is absorbed. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cook the marinated salmon fillets for 12 minutes or until cooked through. (as an option, cook in an air fryer for 7-9 minutes)
  5. Now that your salmon and quinoa are cooked, it’s time to put it all together! Divide the cooked quinoa among serving bowls. Top with steamed broccoli and sliced avocado. Place the baked salmon fillets on top. Garnish with sesame seeds.
  6. Enjoy!
