Southwestern Salmon Quinoa Bowls are full of protein and healthy fats in the salmon and quinoa, which pair perfectly with some roasted veggies and a chipotle ranch sauce that goes on top.
I guess I'm sorta into those Southwestern flavors, eh? Southwestern Chicken Foil Packets were earlier this week and now these Southwestern Salmon Quinoa Bowls! Both recipes are super tasty and actually pretty different in their components, so I'm not getting sick of the Southwestern flavors any time soon.
These Southwestern Quinoa Bowls are standout in flavor AND nutrition. They are full of protein and healthy fats in the salmon and quinoa, which pair perfectly with some roasted veggies and a chipotle ranch sauce that goes on top.
Speaking of that salmon, this post is in partnership with Sitka Salmon Shares, which I have been absolutely loving lately. If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably seen a couple of recipes that I've shared using their fish, and I wanted to share the love with the blog readers, as well! (p.s. you should also follow me on the Insta!)
So let's chat about Sitka Salmon Shares. I don't know about you, but finding sustainably raised seafood that I love has not been an easy task. I love Sitka Salmon Shares because I know that I will be getting seafood that is wild, sustainably caught, flash frozen at the peak of freshness, and is 100% traceable from boat to doorstep. Oh yeah, that's right. I forgot to mention that it's delivered TO YOUR DOORSTEP! Game. Changer.
Lastly, the fish is delicious. I have been 100% satisfied with every piece of fish that I have cooked from my shares.
In this recipe for Southwestern Salmon Quinoa Bowls, I baked my salmon since everything else I was making was in the oven as well. If you want to utilize your grill or stovetop instead, go for it! When I am grilling or pan-searing salmon, I typically cook it for 6-8 minutes on each side. In the oven, 12-15 minutes at 425 does the trick, but it might take a few minutes longer for this recipe since there are a bunch of other things in the oven as well. The main sign that it is done is that it flakes easily.
The southwestern seasoned salmon is served in these quinoa bowls along with roasted sweet potatoes, bell peppers, black beans, and a chipotle ranch sauce. The whole bowl is bursting with flavor!
