A healthy and impressive dinner can come together in a flash. “The salmon provides lean protein and omega-3 fats that fight aging and support heart health; quinoa is a complete protein, which means it has all the essential amino acids; and antioxidants from basil, balsamic vinegar, and tomatoes also fight aging and inflammation," says Michelle Davenport, a nutritionist specializing in anti-aging at the University of California, San Francisco. Talk about a super meal.
Heat a pan over medium-high heat and lightly coat with olive oil. Season 1 fillet (3 to 5 ounces) salmon and, once oil is hot, sear skin-side down. Meanwhile reheat 1/2 cup cooked quinoa. Flip salmon when opaque more than halfway through. Add 1/2 cup halved grape tomatoes and sauté. Fluff quinoa and spread out on plate. Top with salmon and tomatoes. Pour 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar into the hot pan and reduce for 15 seconds over medium heat. Pour over dish and top with fresh basil leaves, if desired.
