Baked Glazed Salmon with Wild Rice Salad and Greens

Standard

I love a good piece of freshly baked salmon but when you combine this super heart healthy fish with a tasty, sticky glaze and a delicious, nutritious salad and greens…well let’s just say I was one happy camper at the dinner table tonight!

What you need… (for 2 people)

For the fish:salmon2

2 skinned salmon fillets

2 cloves garlic

2 tsp grated ginger

1 tbsp maple syrup

1/3 cup fresh orange juice

juice of 1/2 a lime

1 shallot, finely sliced

1 red chilli, chopped

 

For the salad:

1/4 cup brown rice

1/4 cup black wild rice

2 shallots, finely sliced

4 button mushrooms, choppedwild rice salad

1/4 cup coriander, chopped

1/2 tbsp soy sauce

juice of 1/2 a lime

1 tbsp currants (optional)

1 carrot, grated

2 tsp chilli flakes or 1 red chilli finely chopped

1/2 tbsp sesame seeds

1 tsp sesame oil

1/2 tbsp rice bran/peanut oil

 

2 cups of mixed Green veggies (I used Asparagus, snow peas and bok choy but you can use what ever veggies you have hiding in your crisper!)

What to do…salmon dinner

Place a saucepan of water on the stove and bring to the boil before adding the rice.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius then combine all of the sauce ingredients, except for the shallots in small fry pan. Bring the sauce to the boil then allow to simmer until it thickens slightly. Place the salmon fillets into a baking dish and then pour over the sauce, sprinkle over the shallots and then cover with alfoil and place in the oven. Your fish should take 10-15 mins depending on the thickness of the fillets.

Meanwhile, once the rice is cooked, drain it and set aside. Heat a small amount of oil in a frypan and then add the chopped shallots, mushrooms and chilli and saute for 2-3mins. Add the rice to the pan and then add the soy sauce, sesame seeds and lime juice and mix through for 1-2 min. Turn off the heat and then add the carrot, currants, chopped coriander and sesame oil. Set aside until ready to serve.
Just before serving, steam your green veggies and transfer to a serving bowl before checking on your fish. Use a fork to pry the fillet apart slightly to test if it is cooked through. Once it is cooked to your liking remove from the oven and serve up with the salad and steamed greens!Enjoy!A
