– To make the tabbouleh, add cooked quinoa to a bowl. (Follow the instructions on the package) Add fresh chopped parsley, heirloom cherry tomatoes, red onion, cucumbers, and juice from one lemon and salt.

– When the salmon comes out of the oven…put it back on the burner and turn it over. Add butter and when it melts, baste the salmon for about a minute.
