Gluten Free Mediterranean Salmon and Quinoa

 

This post is sponsored by Gorton’s Seafood

I am continually looking for new and healthy recipes to try out on this kids, so I was very excited to get the opportunity to create an easy family recipe for Gorton’s with their Simply Bake Salmon! I wanted a dish that felt like it could work for either lunch or dinner and not be too heavy with its sides.  I ended up going with Mediterranean flavors, including sides of peppers and quinoa and a topping of feta cheese and tomatoes.

SUPPLIES

  • Cutting Board
  • Large Cookie Sheet
  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Tin Foil (optional)

Ingredients
  

Sheet Pan

  • 2 boxes Gorton's Simply Bake Salmon
  • 2 lemons sliced
  • 3 Bell Peppers red, green & orange, sliced
  • ¼ cup Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper

Topping

  • 6 oz Feta Cheese
  • ½ pint Roma Tomatoes
  • 1 TBS Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • 1 tsp oregano

Serve With

  • 1 cup Quinoa (3 cups once prepped)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat Oven to 350
  • Wash peppers, then slice along with lemons
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix the Balsamic Vinaigrette and spices, then toss with sliced peppers and lemon
  • On a large cookie sheet, prep approx ⅓ of the pan with a tin foil barrier. Add peppers and lemons to tinfoil section and lay out salmon pouches on the remaining pan space. Bake for 24 minutes
  • While the salmon is baking, prep quinoa according to directions on packing.
  • I also prepped the topping while the quinoa was on the stove: simply mix all ingredients in the "topping" section
  • Once everything has finished cooking, plate quinoa and salmon. I topped with a little bit of the juices from the salmon bag, followed by the prepared topping mixture

Notes

* We split the four salmon filets between the 8 of us (including 6 kids) but I set the serving size at 4 as that would likely give a better portion size, especially for adults.

I absolutely love how all the flavors turned out. Each ingredient complimented each other beautifully, and most of the kids even ate it as well (which is definitely a win with 6 kiddos!) We will definitely be adding this one to the meal planning rotation.
