Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 orange
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce
  • 2 teaspoons adobo sauce (from chipotle chiles)
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 bunch radishes, trimmed, halved, and thinly sliced 
  • 1/2 cup (from 1 ear) fresh corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • Salt
  • 4 pieces (5 ounces each) skinless salmon fillet

Directions

Arrange oven rack 4 to 6 inches from broiler heat source. Preheat broiler on high. Line jelly-roll pan with foil. In 2-quart saucepan, prepare quinoa as label directs. Transfer to bowl.

Meanwhile, from orange, grate 1 teaspoon peel and squeeze 1/2 cup juice. In blender, puree chipotle, adobo sauce, garlic, cumin, and orange juice.

To bowl with quinoa, stir in radishes, corn, cilantro, green onions, orange peel, and 1/8 teaspoon salt.

Arrange salmon on prepared pan. Sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt, then brush generously on all sides with chile mixture. Broil 5 to 7 minutes or until just opaque throughout. Serve salmon on quinoa pilaf.

Cook's Note

Variation: Use 1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1-in. chunks, instead of salmon; broil 5 to 7 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center (165 degrees F).
