  • 1 Fresh Express® Tuscan Kale Sauté Kit™
  • 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa
  • 1 teaspoon of freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
  • 5 ounce filet of salmon
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Oil


  1. Pre-heat a medium size pan over medium-high heat along with 2 teaspoons of oil. Add the vegetables from the Fresh Express® Sauté Kit™ and cook for 1.5 minutes, stirring often. Remove the pan from the heat and add the Genovese pesto and stir well. Add the parmesan cheese and crispy chickpeas from the Sauté Kit™ along with the quinoa that has been seasoned with the parsley and lemon juice. Mix very well and transfer to a serving plate.
  2. Take the salmon out from the fridge, make sure it has been skin side up for at least 30 minutes, pre-heat the same pan over medium-high heat along with 1 teaspoon of oil. Season the skin side of the salmon with a pinch of oil and then transfer to pan, skin side down. Season the top of the salmon with another pinch of salt and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the skin is well browned, flip the salmon and turn the heat down to medium-low. Cook another 3 minutes or until cooked to your desire and remove from heat. Serve the salmon with the vegetables and enjoy!
