Want a quick way to get heart healthy salmon on the table? Try this recipe from Real Simple. It uses a very easy glaze of brown sugar and soy sauce, and yet the combination broiled with salmon is fantastic! We added some shrimp and grilled it with the same glaze. Yum!
I used my handy, dandy, rice cooker to make the rice, and steam some fresh from the farmer’s market purple and red beans. How simple is that? I guess that’s why they call the magazine “Real Simple.”
- * 1/4 cup brown sugar
- * 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
- * 1 cup brown rice
- * 2 cups green beans sliced in 2" pieces
- * 4 pieces skinless salmon fillet (1 1/4 pounds total)
- * 1 med red onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick wedges
- * 1 tablespoon olive oil
- * kosher salt and black pepper
- 1. Heat broiler. In a bowl, combine the sugar and soy sauce; set aside.
- 2. Cook the rice according to the package directions.
- 3. Steam green beans until crisp-tender.
- 4. Combine beans and rice and set aside.
- 5. Meanwhile, place the salmon and onion on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with the oil and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
- 6. Broil, 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.
- 7. Serve the salmon and onion with the rice and the remaining glaze.
