Mix together the ingredients of the marinade and cover the salmon to marinate for about 1 hour. While the salmon is marinating, cook the quinoa and spiralize the zucchini.
Heat the oil in the pan; add the crushed garlic and fry for 1-2 minutes. Add in the zoodles and stir occasionally until it softens, but still firm, for about 3-4 minutes. Towards the end add the chopped tomatoes, and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Heat the oven to 480F (250C) and place the salmon on a baking tray or casserole dish. Bake for about 7 minutes.
Remove the salmon from the oven to rest for a moment, and in the meantime pour in the salmon juices into the quinoa, mixing well.
Divide the quinoa and zoodles between two plates, then place the salmon on top, sprinkle with chilli flakes to serve.
