Slamon and brown rice


(photo MS)
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon agave nectar (optional)
  • 4 teaspoons canola or peanut oil
  • 4 salmon fillets (4 to 5 ounces each)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 head bok choy (1 1/2 pounds), cored and chopped

  1. Cook rice according to package instructions. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine soy sauce, lime juice, ginger, and agave, if using. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high. Season salmon with salt and pepper and cook until opaque throughout, 1 to 3 minutes per side; transfer to a plate. Wipe skillet clean with a paper towel.
  2. In same skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium. Add garlic and bok choy; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing, until bok choy is bright green, about 3 minutes. Serve salmon and bok choy with rice and soy-lime sauce.

when you eat something like this, one wonders why anyone would ever eat junk food.

This is what I am making for dinner tonight. Bok choy is one of those vegetables that I always forget about, but that I love.

Yum! You can get delicious ready-in-3-minutes brown rice at Trader Joe's, too!

Amy said...

I made it, just like I said I would, and it really WAS so delicious and my whole family loved it!

Have you ever tried the Coho Salmon? It's not always in season, but if you can get ahold of some, it's worth it! Such a rich, delicious flavor.

Great recipe! I look forward to trying it.

Hugs,
Debbie

Hi..I was looking at your picture and remembering something you had said before about gaining weight..I also have to gain weight..and I'm trying..but just can't seem to get any pounds on..do you do anything special to try to pack some pounds on? Does it work? Trying to gain weight with healthy food really isn't that easy! Any ideas? I get looks in the grocery store all the time because I weigh under under 100 pounds and don't buy junk. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks..love your blog too.

Wow - that was an amazing dish. Didn't make nearly enough bok choy, but I will know better next time! That sauce is to live for! Thanks so much for posting this recipe. Blessings.

Salmon is my favorite fish and I love it with ginger and soy! I've never cooked bok choy just by itself but love to eat it in stir fry or just raw in a salad.

By the way, that corn a couple posts down sounds and looks awesome!

Debbie said...

Ohh Slamon!

I thought you guys were vegetarians? Does that not include fish?

Vegetarians and Vegans are different. Some vegetarians eat fish, eggs and dairy, some do not.

Alway looking for a good cook book. The salmon looks yummy.

Jess said...

I find it so rewarding to cook for my family. It's even more rewarding to see my 3 young children (all under 4 1/2 yrs) gobble up a healthy meal! I never would have guessed how excited I would feel from that until I had kids:( thanks fore the recipe. Salmon is my favorite!!
