Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the quinoa

  • Rinse the quinoa.
In a small sauce pot, combine the quinoa and 1 cup [2 cups] lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm.
While the quinoa cooks, prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Quick-pickle the celery

  • Thinly slice the celery on the diagonal.
In a small sauce pot, bring the apple cider vinegar and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water to a boil. Remove from the heat, add the celery, and season with salt and pepper. Cover and let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.

3

Cook the kale and chickpeas

  • Rinse the chickpeas; pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Remove any coarse stems from the cilantro sprigs; set aside the cilantro for garnish.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the kale, season with salt and pepper, and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add the chickpeas and chili powder to the pan, season with salt and pepper, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the chickpeas are slightly crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

4

Prep and cook the fish

Prep and cook instructions are almost identical for all fish options.
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the fish (skin side down for skin-on salmon or snapper) and cook until lightly browned (and the salmon or snapper skin is crisp), 4 to 5 minutes for skin-on salmon or snapper and 3 to 5 minutes for skinless salmon. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes for skin-on salmon or snapper and 1 to 2 minutes for skinless salmon. Transfer to a plate to cool slightly, then cut the fish into 2-inch pieces (discarding the salmon or snapper skin if desired).

Serve

Transfer the quinoa to individual bowls and top with the chickpeas, kale, pickled celery, and fish. Drizzle each bowl with 1 tablespoon creamy citrus dressing and garnish with the cilantro. Serve the remaining dressing on the side.
