Steamed Halibut with Lemon Olive Quinoa Salad
A couple of months ago, J had us over for dinner. She gave me some recipes to pick from and we decided on Martha’s Steamed Halibut with Lemon Olive Quinoa Salad
. Sound delicious? Well it was and it required no substitutions. It was so good that I decided to make it for my dad a few weeks ago (mom was out of town). My dad is an awesome cook; nobody’s cooking is ever good enough. Well, he was sufficiently impressed with this meal. It didn’t wow him but there was no complaints either. I had never used a bamboo steamer so I was unsure about this dish but the bamboo steamer is idiot proof and it does the trick!
The best part is it’s really easy to make. My Lemon Olive Quinoa Salad was pretty plain though. It’s not as flavourful as some of the other Quinoa dishes I’ve made. Perhaps more salt next time. The salad keeps pretty well as leftovers in the week.
As per Jen’s suggestion, I also made up a cucumber, green pepper and blanched asparagus salad with some balsamic vinegar. This worked as the perfect side dish.
