Whether you’re meal prepping or making a quick dinner, this delicious salmon quinoa bowl is a healthy treat.

Servings: 4



  • 1 pound salmon fillets
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Beau Monde Seasoning, or any seasoning you like, to taste


  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 2 cups minced arugula
  • 3 tablespoons plain Greek-style yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Dash Sea salt


Make the salmon:

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F or preheat the grill to medium.
  • Brush both sides of the salmon with lemon juice and sprinkle with the Beau Monde Seasoning. Arrange the salmon in a large baking dish or place it directly on the grill.
  • Bake or grill the salmon until cooked through, about 25 minutes in the oven or 10 minutes on the grill.

Make the quinoa:

  • In a medium saucepan, bring the quinoa and water to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes. Let the quinoa cool then add the tomatoes and arugula, and stir to combine.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and salt. Add the yogurt mixture to the quinoa salad, and stir to combine.
  • To serve, place a small (4-ounce) piece of salmon on top of some salad. (Salmon can be served hot or cold over the salad.)
