Quinoa Crusted Salmon

Quinoa Crusted Salmon

Look, not cookies! Dinner last night was QUINOA CRUSTED SALMON and it was soo good – and husband approved. I roasted some bok choy at the same time, added a simple tahini sauce and it was all ready in 20 minutes. This is my new favorite way to make fish so I can’t wait to eat it all the time until I’m completely sick of it!
