1. To make the one-pan fish and quinoa recipe: In a large shallow plate, season the fish fillets with Cayenne, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Marinate for 10 minutes while you prepare the quinoa.

2. Add quinoa, vegetable stock, butter, garlic, cumin, coriander, smoked paprika, salt, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a large enameled cast iron skillet. Stir well to combine.

3. Place the skillet with the quinoa over low heat. Bring up to a light simmer and simmer for 10 minutes. Quinoa should absorb most of the liquid.

4. Stir the quinoa and arrange the fish fillets and cherry tomatoes on top of the quinoa. Drizzle with one tablespoon of olive oil and simmer for 10 minutes more with the lid on.

5. When the fish is fully cooked (it should feel slightly springy to the touch and no longer translucent), and the quinoa is soft and fluffy, remove the pan from the heat and let the skillet sit for 5 minutes with the lid on.

6. Serve the fish and quinoa straight from the skillet with extra virgin olive oil, dill, parsley leaves, chili flakes, and lemon. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the one-pan fish and quinoa recipe

  • You can use any white fish you like such as cod, halibut, red snapper, or sea bass.
  • Since quinoa and white fish can be a little bland, feel free to add more spices. Go easy on the salt, though.
  • You can add more herbs like mint, basil, fresh oregano if you like.

Tips to cook quinoa

  • Rinse the quinoa well. Quinoa typically contains saponin, a natural compound in the plant that can make it taste a bit sour. Give the quinoa a few cold rinses with a fine mesh strainer until the water runs clear before cooking.
  • Use a 2:1 ratio of liquid to quinoa. Bring 2 cups of liquid to a boil and add one cup of quinoa.

How to keep the one-pan fish and quinoa leftovers?

You can keep any fish and quinoa leftovers in your refrigerator for up to 2 days in an airtight container. Reheat gently on the stove or microwave.

    This dish is a flavor explosion, thanks to the perfectly balanced blend of seasonings. I was pleasantly surprised, especially considering quinoa is often known for its mild taste, and the fact that I replaced butter for olive oil and veggie stock for water. It was a breeze to prepare, which is always a bonus. The only challenge was resisting the temptation to keep indulging. Nevertheless, I'm definitely planning to whip this up again!
