Glazed Salmon Dinner
Time Required: 25 (45 min. total)

There are as many marinades for salmon as there are salmon fish, but this one appeals to the sweet tooth with a decidedly teriyaki flavor.  Remember that fatty fish like salmon and sardines are high omega 3 fatty acids as well as Vitamin D.  Salmon can be one of the most expensive sources of protein that you eat, but remember that the expense is balanced by frugal vegetarian meals on the Orange Tree Menus…and we desperately need the omegas it provides!


1 1/2 lb(s) salmon -- 6 oz. fillets
1/4 cup(s) soy sauce
1/4 cup(s) sucanat -- or brown sugar
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 cup(s) long grain brown rice -- uncooked
3 cup(s) chicken broth
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 stalks broccoli -- cut florets, save stem for soup, etc.


Prep Work:  Cut broccoli florets.  Make rice. (step #3 in directions below)

1.  Place the scaled side of the fillets on a greased broiler pan or baking sheet. 

2.  Combine soy sauce and sugar, then drizzle over salmon.  Set aside to marinate while preparing rice and squash.

3.  To cook rice, bring stock, rice, turmeric, onion powder, salt and pepper to a gentle boil.  Cover with lid, reduce heat to simmer, and cook until liquid is incorporated, approx. 20 min. 

4.  Steam broccoli in steamer pot or in 1” of water in bottom of pot with lid. Simmer for approx. 10 min. Remove from pot and season with a little balsamic vinegar, garlic salt, or butter.

5.  Broil salmon at least 4” away from broiler, 5-8 min. for 1/2-3/4” cuts, and 8-12 min. for 1-1 1/2” cuts.  Done when it flakes easily with a fork and color is uniformly opaque.  Watch carefully, especially towards the end, and do not over-cook as it will be very dry.
