Salmon with pineapple rice

I made this fast, delicious, easy meal in under 30 minutes.
We love salmon and I used brown rice instead of white.
We like brown better here at the Nielson home-healthier too!!

I hope you enjoy-
  • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine, or water
  • 2 pounds salmon fillet
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. with a rack in the center. Make the glaze: In a small bowl, stir brown sugar, olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, and white wine until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Cut salmon fillet into 4 equal-size pieces; arrange, skin side down, in a single layer in a baking dish. Pour glaze over the fish, and turn to coat evenly.
  3. Bake until fish is opaque but still bright pink inside, basting every few minutes with glaze from baking dish, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.
{Here is how I made the rice:}
  • 2 cups uncooked basmati rice- {or brown}
  • 1 pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges, for garnish

Directions

  1. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Stir in the rice, reduce to a simmer. Cook until rice is tender but still firm, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain; rinse with cool water.
  2. Transfer to a bowl, and stir in the pineapple, cilantro, bell pepper, and olive oil. Season with salt and black pepper. Cover, and chill. Serve cooled with lime wedges.
