By topping baked salmon with hummus rather than a sauce, this recipe creates a simple, artful dish that you can have on the table in plenty of time for a weeknight dinner.



    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    2. Rinse quinoa in a fine sieve. Drain and transfer to a medium pot with 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to simmer until water is absorbed, approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside for 5 minutes. Remove cover and fluff with a fork.

    3. Using a knife, spread 1 tablespoon hummus onto the top of each salmon fillet, covering the entire surface. Drizzle olive oil and orange juice over salmon, then season with 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, chili powder, paprika and Seafood Seasoning. Place salmon, skin side down, on a non-stick baking sheet.

    4. Bake for 10 minutes or until salmon is cooked through.

    5. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine cooked quinoa with cilantro, red bell pepper, fresh orange zest, pumpkin seeds, crushed red pepper, 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

    6. Remove salmon from oven; serve warm over mixed greens with a side of cilantro quinoa.
