  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For Quinoa Salad:

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, honey, soy sauce, grated ginger, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper to create the glaze.
  3. Place salmon fillets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the glaze over each fillet.
  4. Bake the salmon in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
