Ingredients

  • 1 pound salmon fillet
  • ½ tsp salt, divided
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • 8 ounces string beans (green, yellow, or a mix), trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 ¾ cups water
  • ¾ cup quinoa (red, white, or tricolored), rinsed
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp fresh oregano, chopped, plus more for garnish, or ½ tsp dried
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ¼ cup pitted Kalamata olives, halved or sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Place salmon on the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with ⅛ tsp. salt and pepper. Bake until the salmon is no longer opaque in the center and flakes easily with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes, then flake the salmon into bite-size pieces (discard the skin).
  • Meanwhile, bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a medium saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add beans; cover and cook until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Rinse the beans under cold water, drain well, and set aside. Combine water, quinoa, and ⅛ tsp. salt in the saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  • Whisk lemon juice, oil, garlic, oregano, and the remaining ¼ tsp. salt in a small bowl.
  • To serve, divide the quinoa among 4 dinner bowls. Arrange the salmon, beans, tomato, feta, and olives over the quinoa. Drizzle with the dressing and garnish with more fresh oregano, if desired.
