Organic Salad Mix topped with Spicy Salmon

This is my favorite go to salad, super flavorful & filling.
1 Salmon steak per person
1/2 to 1 cup cooked Quinoa
1/2 onion (sliced)
2 Jalapenos (sliced)
Salad mix
1 Lemon
Salt & Pepper
Let's get started, cook about 1/2 (2 servings) to 1 cup (4 serving) of quinoa. Meanwhile season the individual portioned salmon steaks with salt & pepper, set aside. Slice 1/2 onion, 2 Jalapenos & in a medium saut√© pan heat up a Tb of olive oil & cook for 4-5 minutes. Move onion and chilies to the outer edges of the pan, place salmon seasoned side down to brown. Remember to only flip once, cook about 5-6 minutes per side (or until desired readiness). Turn heat off. Now to assemble your salad... I used a combination of organic kale, spinach & Swiss chard salad mix, lay a bed of this on your plate, spoon on a good portion of quinoa (1/2 cup cooked) & top with a portion of salmon & the onion pepper mix. The dressing for this salad is very complicated.... Lemon wedges! Enjoy!
