Number of Servings: 4


    1/2 cup quinoa
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup light sour cream
    3 Tbsp light mayonnaise
    1 tsp grated lime zest
    2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
    1 tsp grated fresh ginger
    1 Tbsp minced fresh cilantro
    pinch salt (not in calculations)
    14 oz salmon, cut into 4 pieces

1. Cook quinoa according to package directions.
2. Combine the sour cream, mayo, lime zest, 1 Tbsp lime juice, ginger, cilantro and salt in a small bowl, mixing well. Set aside.
