Recipe Intro From Feastwithsafiya

My homeland inspired, Quinoa, and Brown Rice Salad with Black Olives and fresh Coconut. Served with pan-seared Cod seasoned with Cilantro-Garlic Chutney.

The grains, buttery olives, crunch of fresh coconut, and juicy pomegranate pearls complement the pan-seared cod so well ๐Ÿ˜‹. My In-laws stopped by the other day when I made this for dinner. They loved the creaminess from the beans and the coconut was a hit with them.
