Vanilla-Citrus Marinated Salmon with Quinoa

  Adapted from Shauna Sever's Pure Vanilla

1/3 C extra virgin olive oil
juice and zest from 1 orange
juice and zest from 1 lemon
juice and zest from 1 lime
1 t crushed garlic
freshly ground sea salt
freshly ground rainbow pepper
caviar of 1 vanilla bean
1 t pure vanilla extract

Whisk all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. Pour over your meat or fish and let marinate for one to four hours.

I marinated fresh salmon filets for an hour, then poached them until just firm.

I served them with a drizzle of olive oil and a side of tri-color quinoa.
