This recipe I picked up on one of those recipe cards that they somtimes give out at the supermarkets. This Salmon dish was delicious. I make it often. It is quick and easy. Sometimes I just want to get home and get dinner on the table without to much complications. Boxed rice side dishes can really come in handy. There are some out there that are pretty good. Here is a quick and delicious dinner with the help of a boxed rice side dish. Enjoy.
1First prepare rice following package instructions only add 2 tablespoons butter instead of one and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. This is the only thing different that I do to the prepared rice mix. While the rice is cooking. Do not start to grill the fish until your rice is almost done. Rice takes about 25 minutes to cook so start to grill fish when the rice has about 10 more minutes to finish cooking. Preheat grill or broiler. broiler.
2Next Whisk vinegar and raspberry preserves until well blended set aside.
3Sprinkle fish with garlic powder, salt and black pepper on both sides. Next with a pastry brush brush each piece of fish on both sides with the melted butter. Coat grill pan with a little butter flavored cooking spray lay fish on top and place under the broiler or on the grill. Grill fish 3-4 minutes on each side. Fish should be opaque and seperate easily.
4Serve Salmon alongside wild rice, Top salmon with raspberry sauce. I like to cook fresh asparagus and serve alongside the fish and rice. Enjoy
