Impress your loved one by whipping up this deliciously healthy meal featuring yummy salmon on a bed of quinoa. This heart-healthy recipe is part of a four-course menu created by MasterChef Asia finalist Chef Lennard Yeong for the Singapore Heart Foundation. (Prep time excludes marinating time.)
1Mix the coconut water, light soya sauce, garlic, ginger, kaffir lime leaf and white pepper together and marinate the salmon for 2 hours.
2Thereafter, pan sear the salmon for 2 minutes on each side.
3Rinse the quinoa then place it into the chicken stock, water and kombu (optional). Simmer the mixture for 10-12 minutes till dry.
4Turn off the heat and add in the zucchinis and carrots. Cover the pot and allow to steam for 5 minutes. Remove the kombu (optional) and fluff the quinoa.
5Spoon the quinoa onto a plate, top with the salmon, and finish off with the spring onions.
Chef's tip: Reduce the marinating time for a lower sodium intake!
