Salmon Florentine and Quinoa Pilaf

16 Nov

A few years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Ellie Krieger, she is a food network star, celebrity chef and nutritionist. I met her on a book tour, while promoting her book So Easy. She was equally as pleasant and kind in person as she is on TV. Since receiving this book at the speaking engagement, I have used it countless times and it probably my most used cookbook. Every dish that I have tried in the book, literally is so easy and quite healthy. The Salmon Florentine recipe with Quinoa Pilaf is one my favorites. The topping on the salmon really adds such an amazing flavor, you can really taste all of the individual ingredients,  and the quinoa is the perfect counterpart. (I added the steamed asparagus just because I was in the mood for it!)
