recipe: Salmon Quinoa Bowl

This has probably been the busiest year so far. With juggling home, work, family and exercise there hasn't been much time left to blog. Never the less I'm full of inspiration and ideas. While the blog started off somewhat as a 'parent blog', I have decided not to continue in that niche. I originally created my blog to be a hobby for myself, way from the kid/baby stuff I deal with on a daily basis. I'm not exempting myself from it, but the focus will definitely be more on beauty, well being, recipes and lifestyle. we'll see where it goes. But enough with the chit chat:

I've wanted to post this recipe for ages now. It's a firm family favorite of ours and it's really easy to make. I love to eat this after a weekend of not so healthy choices and its a great lunchbox meal, as you can enjoy it hot or cold.

You need:

400g fresh salmon
2-3 bell peppers (I used a green, yellow and red one)
1 medium onion
2cups quinoa (unboiled)
1-2 tbs coconut oil
fresh ground pepper
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Avocado (optional)

Dice the salmon and let it marinate in soy sauce. Prepare the quinoa according to the instructions on the package.

Chop the peppers and onion. Fry the diced onions in a little coconut oil until they begin to get soft. Add Salmon (with soy sauce) and stir occasionally, Add diced peppers. When the salmon is fully cooked turn off heat.

Mix salmon-pepper mixture with the quinoa in a large bowl or saucepan. Add a hint of ground pepper and a tbs coconut oil and gently mix with a large spoon. Serve with diced avocados on top.
