Sometimes I just want something so simple for dinner (or I’m just too lazy to cook). This is a healthy dish that only takes a few minutes of real cooking time. No fancy sauce, no fancy prep work. But it is so so so so good, especially when the salmon is fresh at the market. If you don’t want to make rice, you could use boxed instant couscous, which is even easier and faster to cook than rice.
Grilled Salmon with Rice
(4) wild Salmon fillets
4 cups cooked organic Jasmine rice
4 T soy sauce (or teriyaki sauce) – use Organic Tamari for gluten free
strips of nori (seaweed) – optional. You could also top with sesame seeds or sliced almonds
1. Season each salmon fillet with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat large fry pan on medium-high heat. Add canola oil. When hot, carefully place salmon in pan. Fry 2 minutes. Turn fillet. Turn heat to low. Fry 3 minutes until done. This should give you a medium cooked salmon. If you like medium rare or well done, adjust cooking time.
2. Serve on top of rice. Top with nori and a little soy sauce.
