Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil; mist with cooking spray. In a small bowl, stir together cumin, curry, pepper and 1/4 tsp. salt. Rub oil on tilapia, season on both sides with spice mixture and place on baking sheet. Bake until fish is opaque and flakes with a fork, 10 to 12 minutes.

  • In a pot over high heat, bring 1 1/4 cups water to a boil. Stir in quinoa and a pinch of salt; cover, reduce heat to low and simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let stand 4 minutes. Fluff quinoa with a fork.

  • Divide quinoa and fish among four plates; top each with 1/4 cup salsa and serve with beans and lemon wedges, if desired.
