Ashley's Story

My boyfriend likes to shout out random ingredients in the house and then expects an awesome dinner to follow... this is a creation I came up one night before he had a loooong run in the morning. It's very filling and minus the sodium in the rice, it's very healthy too!

Ingredients

2
salmon fillets with skin on, 1/3lb pieces
1 box
generic, garlic/chicken flavored rice
1
lemon
1 tsp
coarse salt(tastes best but other salt is fine)
1 tsp
fresh ground pepper
1 tsp
garlic powder or minced garlic

Directions Step-By-Step

1
prepare the rice first- following the directions on the box. Usually it says to toast the rice in a couple tbsp of butter and then add 2 cups of water and simmer for about 20 minutes.
2
While the rice is simmering, rinse the salmon and slice it lengthwse to create a picket for the rice. Make the cut close to the skin
3
Stuff an overabundance of rice into the salmon and put skin side down on an oiled cookie sheet.
4
Add the seasonings to the salmon- salt, pepper, garlic and put either on the bottom shelf on your oven while on broil, or on the top shelf in a 500 degree oven. I cook it for about 12-15 minutes until the top starts to brown and the skin is sizzling.
5
After you take the fish out of the oven, squeeze 1/2 of the lemon on each piece and serve. You really don't need a side for theis either since you have the rice inside.
