    • Place the salmon in the baking dish
      • Cover salmon with soy sauce and brown sugar (this will caramelize and become delicious)

    • Sauté onions, jalapeño, garlic, and ginger in butter and sesame oil until fragrant and season with a dash of salt and pepper
    • Add the julienned  carrots, diced avocado, and cooked quinoa
