  • 2 6 oz. salmon filets
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs*
  • 2 tbsp quinoa rinsed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp parsley


  • Whisk egg in a bowl, and in a separate bowl combine the breadcrumbs, quinoa, salt, garlic, and parsley.
  • Next heat 1-2 tbsp oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Dip each salmon filet into the egg mixture, and then directly into the quinoa mixture, making sure both sides are coated.
  • Place salmon directly into the skillet, and cover the skillet with a lid. Cook salmon for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until salmon is cooked through.
  • Enjoy!
