This was an absolutely delicious dinner! Having worked at a seafood restaurant for years, I can be a bit of a snob buying fish from a supermarket, but this was wonderful. Thanks, Monique, over at Ambitious Kitchen for sharing a great meal!
So - don’t forget to allow time for the marinating - it’s scrumptious, and you want the salmon to have plenty of time getting to know all those flavors! I did skip the honey - I think someone hid my honey bear.
Pin It The quinoa was amazing. I had looked at 3 stores for coconut milk, and could only find coconut water. So, I used a generous tablespoon of CocoLopez (for pina coladas) and skim milk in it’s stead. It turned out jussst fine. And in my plating frenzy, I didn’t mix the pineapple in with the quinoa, and added it on top instead. Of course, after the photoshoot, it all got mixed together.
