3Boil rice in pouch according to package directions. Set aside to keep warm until ready to use. ** I have found that if you dump out your rice water and put the cooked rice pouch back in the warm pot with the lid on that your rice will stay fresh until ready to use.

4Heat grill ( or pan, use a little olive oil if pan cooking). Add the salmon fillets and cook on medium heat until flaky, be careful not to overcook. (4 or 5 min. per side)

5**** WARNING***Discard marinade, DO NOT use, could cause food poisoning !

6While the salmon is cooking, add a little olive oil to a pan and stir fry asparagus, mushrooms and carrots till almost tender. We like ours slightly crispy and not soggy.
