Press-It Thursday: Orange-Sesame Salmon with Quinoa | RD in the Midwest

Today’s PRESS-IT Thursday recipe is from Kara of RD in the MIDWEST. Kara, a Registered Dietician from a small town in Iowa, has a Bachelor’s degree in Dietetics and a Master’s degree in Nutrition Science. She says she’s passionate about “cooking delicious food that is equally nutritious.”

Kara’s dish is a flavorful salmon recipe with orange, sesame oil, soy sauce, and ginger, which also includes a side of super healthy quinoa.

Quinoa is often lumped in with whole grains, but is actually a tiny seed, and nutritional powerhouse. Here are the nutritional contents from whfoods.com.
