Meal Prep Monday: Grilled Salmon & Quinoa

When pressed with time, it can be hard to pull together meals for the week.  Luckily, the store had some pre-marinated salmon portions on sale and I took advantage of that.


I bought two filets marinated in maple dijon and two filets marinated in teriyaki, then placed it on the grill.  It only takes about 5 to 10 minutes (or longer if it’s a bigger portion).


For the quinoa, it’s a half cup of quinoa to one cup of chicken broth and bring to a boil.  Total cooking time was 20 minutes.  Halfway thru I added the butternut squash, and for the last few minutes, I added the spinach and the cranberries.  Remove from heat.  Let it sit for about five minutes.


Divide the quinoa and salmon in containers for the week and refrigerate.


See? Easy peasy!

Enjoy!
