How do I make it ?
Heat oven to 400°F.
Place quinoa in pie plate. Reserve 2 Tbsp. dressing for later use; brush remaining dressing evenly onto both sides of fish fillets.
Dip fish, 1 fillet at a time, into quinoa, turning to evenly coat both sides of each fillet with quinoa. Place in single layer in shallow baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake 10 to 12 min. or until fish flakes easily with fork.
Meanwhile, combine all remaining ingredients except reserved dressing.
Drizzle fish with reserved dressing. Serve with cucumber mixture.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
English cucumbers — also known as hothouse, greenhouse or seedless cucumbers — are typically longer and have a milder flavour than the regular garden-variety cucumbers. In addition, the peels on these cucumbers are thinner and the cucumbers also contain smaller, less noticeable seeds.
The cucumber mixture can be prepared ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 24 hours before serving.
