BARLEY
Barley contains a very important type of fibre called beta glucans. In numerous studies, beta-glucans were found to reduce cholesterol levels, support healthy blood sugar, support the immune system, reduce inflammation in the digestive tract, and even have cancer protective effects.

LIME
Iron deficiency is the worlds most common nutrient deficiency. Consuming foods high in vitamin C (like limes), increases iron absorption from the diet, especially plant sources of iron (leafy greens, legumes, grains, nuts and seeds).

Preparation

1

Prepare and cook the quinoa:  Turn on the oven to 375 F to cook the asparagus.

Add water (4 cups, 8 cups, 12 cups) to a medium pot. On high heat, bring the water to a boil. Place the quinoa in a strainer and rinse well. Once water is boiling, add the quinoa and salt (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 1/2 tsp) to the water. Stir to combine and reduce heat to medium. Let boil uncovered for about 12 minutes. Drain the cooked quinoa in a strainer.

Note: This method of cooking the quinoa is ideal for this small grain Saskatchewan grown quinoa.

2

Prepare the asparagus: Wash and rinse all produce. While the quinoa is cooking, break off the woody end of the asparagus. Bend the asparagus spear about 2-3 cm from the end and it will break at the right spot. Cut the asparagus in 4 cm pieces. 

3

Cook the asparagus: On a baking sheet. place the Walleye drizzle with oil (1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 3/4 tsp) and salt (1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp). Cook for about 9 minutes. Add the asparagus pieces to the baking sheet lined with non stick liner, drizzle with oil (1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 3/4 tsp) and bake for an additional  7 minutes or until the asparagus are cooked but still crunchy and the salmon breaks apart easily with a fork. Once cooked, cut the Walleye in individual portions.

note:  Ensure the fish is cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 158F. Do not overcook the fish as it will become dry.

4

Prepare the vegetables:  Cut the cucumber in 2 length wide then cut each halves in 1/2 cm thick slices. Cut the radish in 1/2 cm slices. Cut the parsley in about 1 cm long pieces. 

Note: the original receipe is made with dill but it was unavailable this week and was substituted with parsley. 

5

Assemble: When the quinoa and the asparagus are cooked, place them in a large bowl. Add the radish, cucumber, parsley and Zesty lemon dressing. Combine with a large spoon.

6

6cf

Serve: On individual plates, place the salad. Garnish with a piece of Walleye and serve.

CUCUMBER  
Cucumbers are one of the few foods that we eat without removing the seeds. Interestingly, it is the cucumber seeds that contain a number of carotenoids and flavonoids that can help protect our heart and blood vessels. Cucumbers also have compounds called cucurbitacins that have anti-cancer effects and help manage blood sugar.
