Hi Friends! Happy Memorial Day. I can’t believe another month is coming to an end.

Yesterday, I spent the early evening meal prepping for the week, utilizing my mason jars. (More on that on Thursday.) With all of the veggies, quinoa and salmon, I created this recipe, Moroccan Salmon and Quinoa Bowl.

The flavors of fresh dill and currants paired with the zesty lemon and spicy red onion, brings so much flavor and brightness to the salmon. If you wanted some spice, add some red ch illi flakes. This recipe make two servings.
