    tips & techniques
    Cook the quinoa
    1 Cook the quinoa

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the quinoa to the pot and cook, uncovered, 20 to 22 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

    Prepare & roast the squash
    2 Prepare & roast the squash

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the ends of the squash. Halve lengthwise; using a spoon, scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds. Cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Place on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Turn to coat and arrange in an even layer. Roast 24 to 26 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    3 Prepare the remaining ingredients & make the sauce

    Meanwhile, cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a bowl, combine the chopped peanuts, coconut chips, and togarashi. In a separate bowl, combine the yuzu kosho, coconut aminos, and honey (kneading the packet before opening).

    Cook the mushrooms
    4 Cook the mushrooms

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushroom pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to the pot of cooked quinoa; add the roasted squash. Stir to combine. Wipe out the pan.

    Cook the salmon
    5 Cook the salmon

    Pat the salmon dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned salmon, skin side down. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until the skin is browned and crispy. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. 

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for fish.
