  • Salmon and Rice

    • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
    • 2 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce (gluten-free if needed)
    • 1/2 cup uncooked long-grain brown rice
    • 2 cups broccoli florets
    • 4 skinless salmon fillets (4 oz each)
    • 1 large red onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick wedges
    • 1 Tbsp olive oil
    • Black pepper to taste
  • Mixed Greens Salad

    • 6 cups (about 5 oz) mixed greens
    • 2 Tbsp olive oil
    • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
    • 1/8 tsp salt
    • Black pepper to taste


    • Preheat broiler. In a bowl, combine brown sugar and soy sauce; set aside.
    • Cook rice according to package directions, stirring in broccoli during the last 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand until broccoli is tender, about 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
    • Lightly coat a shallow baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange the salmon and onion in baking pan. Drizzle with oil and season with black pepper.
    • Broil the salmon, spooning half the sugar and soy sauce glaze over the salmon during the last 2 minutes of cooking, until the salmon is opaque throughout, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve the salmon and onion over the rice with the remaining glaze.
    • Make the salad: In a large bowl, toss the mixed greens with the olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.
    • Serve the salmon and rice with the salad on the side.
