Nutrition for Runners: Grilled Salmon with Vegetable Couscous and Artichoke Vinaigrette


Tonight’s recipe is yet another one from the Athlete’s Palate cookbook I got for Christmas. I had not yet tried one of the seafood recipes in the book and decided to make this one my first try.

I made one key change to the recipe. Since we did not have any couscous in the house I ended up using quinoa instead and I think it worked just fine.

It is not an overly complicated recipe to make but in order to save time I made the vinaigrette and the vegetable quinoa last night so that I just had to cook the fish when I got home from my run.

This recipe was another hit. I would say the best part is definitely the artichoke vinaigrette. Both of my kids seemed to enjoy the meal as well so that was another plus. This is another recipe I will put back into the rotation another time.
