This is such a nutrient-dense food, packed with omega-3, protein, vitamins and minerals! I made this as a main dish, but it can also be served as a side dish or for brunch. Add a green salad and you can have a very healthy supper! Please visit my blog, www.InnerHarmonyNutrition.com for more gluten-free, low-GI recipes.

- Salt and pepper the salmon fillet and sprinkle 1 Tbsp of white wine or sake.
- In the meantime, wash and chop all the vegetables.
- In a saucepan, place quinoa and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil.
- Place the salmon fillet with the skin side down, reduce to a simmer, and cover. Cook until all water is absorbed, for about 10 – 15 minutes.
