In your bag
- ½ cup rainbow quinoa
- 1 organic lemon
- 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh flat-leaf parsley
- Seafood options:
- 2 wild Alaskan skin-on salmon fillets (about 5 ounces each)
- 2 wild Alaskan skinless halibut fillets (about 6 ounces each)
- 10 ounces wild sea scallops
- ½ pound organic green beans
- 1 or 2 cloves organic peeled fresh garlic
- Sun Basket Dijon sauce base (Dijon mustard - cornichons - capers - dried dill)
- ¼ cup coconut milk
It’s common to trim both ends from green beans but not necessary. Chef Justine saves time (and food waste) by trimming only the tough ends where the beans are snapped off from the stalk. The tapered tips are tender enough to eat.
