  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet)
  • Prep time:20 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 3/4 inch thick)
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime rind
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper

Quinoa-vegetable salad: Combine 1 1/4 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth and 3/4 cup uncooked quinoa in a medium saucepan; bring mixture to a boil. Cover and simmer 12 minutes or until liquid is almost absorbed. Stir in 1 1/2 cups chopped zucchini and 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper. Cover and cook 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat. Stir in 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper.
