Yield
Serves 2 (serving size: 1 fillet and about 2/3 cup quinoa)

The fragrant orange glaze caramelizes as the salmon quickly cooks under the broiler. To serve 4, double the salmon, glaze, and quinoa, and increase the water for the quinoa to 1 1/4 cups.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler to high.

Step 2

Combine 2/3 cup water, quinoa, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 13 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Stir in parsley, olives, and pine nuts.

Step 3

While quinoa cooks, arrange fillets, skin side down, on a foil-lined baking sheet. Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, syrup, rind, juice, Dijon, garlic, and pepper in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Spread orange mixture evenly over fillets. Broil salmon 6 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Serve fillets with quinoa mixture.
