Maple Soy Salmon and Wild Rice

Maple Soy Salmon

I picked up some fresh wild Alaska salmon at the store tonight.  I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do with it, but salmon always turns out wonderful.  Wild rice is so much more hearty and flavorful than your basic white rice.  I whipped up this maple soy salmon with wild rice and baby corn in about 20 minutes.

Maple Soy Salmon with Wild Rice
Serves: 1 (easily doubled)

Ingredients:

  • Wild Alaska Salmon Filet
  • 1/8 Cup Maple Syrup (the real stuff!)
  • 1/8 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Wild Rice
  • 1/4 Cup Long Grain Brown Rice
  • Water
  • 1/2 TBSP Butter
  • Sesame Oil
  • Scallions
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Baby Corn or Other Veggie
  1. Boil both rices together in the appropriate amount of water (I used 1 1/2 cups for 1/2 cup of rice)
  2. Turn your oven to broil and set your oven rack to the middle or lower level.
  3. Place the salmon and your baby corn (or other veggie) in a pan or casserole dish.
  4. Mix the maple syrup and soy sauce and spoon about half of it on the salmon.
  5. Place the salmon under the broiler for approximately 10 minutes, or until done.  Spoon the remainder of the sauce over the salmon about a minute before removing the salmon.
  6. Once the rice is cooked, add the butter to the rice and stir.  Add a splash of sesame oil to the rice.  Pour rice on plate.
  7. Plate your salmon on the rice and place the baby corn on top of the salmon.
  8. Spoon the sauce from the bottom of the pan on the fish and baby corn.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped scallions.

Enjoy!
