  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and 2 cloves garlic until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  2. Stir quinoa into onion mixture until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes.

  5. Transfer salmon to a plate and flake fish meat; discard skin and set salmon aside.
  6. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir 2 cloves garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  7. Stir Swiss chard and lemon juice into garlic until Swiss chard begins to soften, about 2 minutes; remove from heat.
  8. Gently fold flaked salmon and chard into the cooked quinoa. Season with salt and black pepper.

Well this is just fabulous! I did grill my salmon with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. Otherwise made as written and it is so, so good!

Absolutely my family's favorite recipe from this website. Didn't need to change a thing, although made it once with kale due to what the store had and that was great too.

Very bland. Felt like it was a waste of such nutritous ingredients.

Will definitely be added to the weekly rotation!

Loved this dish. Used powdered vegetable stock which packs a punch in terms of flavour. Served with a beautiful crisp Chardonnay it makes a perfect meal. Will definitely add this to my favourit...
