Forget sacrificing your digestive comfort for less-than-healthy “comfort foods!” Instead, load up your plate with delicious and powerful low FODMAP foods!

Here’s how to make this delicious Low FODMAP Marinated Salmon with Quinoa Salad — the best part is, it’ll only take you 30 minutes!
What You’ll Need:
Fresh salmon (6 oz. per adult, 3 oz. per child)
3 tablespoons olive oil
Handful of basil leaves, chopped
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 a cucumber cut into slices and then cut into small cubes
1/4 cup feta cheese
6 radishes washed and sliced thinly
Salt & Pepper
What You’ll Do:
- Let’s start with the marinade! Combine the juice of 1 lemon with 3 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, and the chopped basil leaves
- Cover your salmon filets with the marinade and cover. Allow them to sit in the fridge for at least two hours before grilling
- For the Quinoa Salad, add the cooked quinoa in a bowl with the sliced radishes, cubed cucumber, and the feta
- Mix the salad ingredients gently with a spoon and season with the juice of one lemon, a tablespoon of olive oil, and salt & pepper to taste
- Now add the marinated salmon to a hot grill — cooking till the salmon is grilled on the outside but still moist on the inside (8+ minutes depending on thickness)
- Serve the grilled salmon on a plate with the quinoa salad and garnish with radishes and basil!
