This is actually delightful. Easy to make, but I didn’t use sheeps milk yoghurt. Plus it’s a recipe endorsed by one of my favourites, the amazing Miranda Kerr, how hot does she look here in the reebok ad? Anyways, enjoy the recipe. I’m sooo sunburnt after a long beach walk today.

Eat Fit Food's Citrus Marinated Salmon with a Quinoa Salad

When I was recently back in Australia and my schedule was hectic I had some of my meals delivered by  Eat Fit Food. This was one of my favourite recipes so I thought I should share it with you. Not only is it quick and easy to prepare, it is also nutritious and contains one of my favourite ingredients, quinoa.

I hope you enjoy it, Miranda xxx
