1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the salmon fillets on the tray, skin-side-down, and set to one side.
2. Trim the roots and any ragged greens from the spring onion, then thinly slice it. Scoop the spring onion into a mixing bowl. Peel the ginger and finely grate it into the bowl. Add the cooked quinoa, sesame oil and tamari to the bowl and stir to mix.
3. Spoon the quinoa mix over the top of each salmon fillet and lightly press it onto the salmon to evenly coat it. Slide the tray into the oven and roast the salmon for 8-14 mins till the salmon is cooked through. The salmon should flake easily when pressed with a fork and the flesh will be opaque. Cook for a little longer,if you need to.
4. Cut the lemon into wedges and serve with the salmon, alongside stir-fried greens and rice.
5. Keep your quinoa?
The leftover quinoa will keep in your fridge for up to 3 days.
