    Your Pantry Essentials
    A pan. a pot to cook Quinoa, a bowl to mix salad
    Your preferred cooking oil, extra virgin Olive oil
    Salt and Pepper.
    Prepare your Ingredients
    Take the fish fillets out of the fridge, 15 minutes before you intend to fry it.

    Boil the Quinoa
    1. Soak the Quinoa in water for about 2 minutes. Put quinoa in a sieve and then rinse it under running water for about 30 seconds to get rid of the excess starch. Shake off the excess water.
    2. Bring some water to a boil. For every 100g of Quinoa, you will need 250ml of water. Once the water starts boiling then add in some salt.
    3. Turn the heat to medium. Put the quinoa in and cover the pot. Let it cook for about 15 – 20 minutes.
    Grill the Fish
    Season the fish with lime zest, salt and pepper. Heat some oil in a pan, once it’s hot enough start frying fish fillets. Roughly 3 minutes aside on a medium flame / heat. Once the fillets are cooked and they slightly coloured on both sides, keep the aside.
    Prepare the Salad and Serve
    To prepare your salad, combine the following in a large bowl; baby spinach, celery, cucumber, tomato, quinoa and any remaining lime zest and dill. Whisk the mustard, lime juice (as per your liking) and extra virgin olive oil in a separate bowl. Dress and toss the salad just before serving it with the fish.
