  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 100 g quinoa, cooked
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1/2 tbsp ghee
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 70 g sundried tomatoes, rinsed & chopped

Salmon marinade

  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 1/2 tbsp ghee
  • 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp hot paprika
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • chilli flakes, to taste


  • Mix the marinade ingredients together and pour over the salmon. Cover the salmon and allow to marinate for about 1 hour.
  • While the salmon is marinating, cook the quinoa and spiralize the zucchini.
  • Heat the oil in the pan, add the crushed garlic and fry for 1-2 minutes. Add in the zoodles and stir occasionally until it softens (about 3-4 minutes). Towards the end add the chopped tomatoes, and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Heat the oven to 400°F (200°C) and place the salmon on a baking tray or casserole dish. Bake for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove the salmon from the oven and set aside to rest. In the meantime, pour the salmon juices into the quinoa, and mix well.
  • Divide the quinoa and zoodles between two plates, then place the salmon on top. Sprinkle with chili flakes to serve.
