  • 2/3 cup tri-coloured quinoa, rinsed well
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 500 g skinless, boneless firm white fish fillets
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 200 g trimmed watercress
  • 200 g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small lebanese cucumber, halved lengthways, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 tbsp pomegranate molasses to serve

Green hummus

  • 1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup coriander leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup mint leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground sumac
  • 2 long green chillies, seeded, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • 1 1/2 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice


  1. Place quinoa and water in a medium saucepan over high heat. Cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Cook, covered, for 10 minutes. Stand, covered, for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat a grill plate, grill pan or barbecue on high. Brush fish with oil. Cook for 3 minutes each side or until just cooked through. (The cooking time will depend on the thickness of the fish.) Transfer fish to a plate and cover loosely with foil.
  3. To make the Green hummus, process parsley, coriander, mint, sumac, chilli, hummus, water and half the lemon juice until smooth.
  4. Place quinoa, watercress, tomato, cucumber, pomegranate seeds and remaining lemon juice in a large bowl. Toss to combine.
  5. Serve fish with quinoa salad. Drizzle generously with green hummus and pomegranate molasses.
