The Toaster Oven, the Rice Cooker, and the Fancy Salmon

My absolute favorite way to make salmon is in the oven. Salmon is a delicate fish that needs some oven bakin’ TLC…not like most white fish or tuna which can just be seared.

Why I love this dish?

  • Super duper healthy
  • Easy
  • Takes about 25 minutes from fridge to plate

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • Fresh fillet Atlantic Salmon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 1 tsp dill
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • A good handful of cleaned green beans
  • 1 c Trader Joe’s 15 minute brown rice
  • 1 tsp grapeseed oil
  • 1 tsp basil
  • Juice ½ lemon
  • Fresh black pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat toaster oven to 350 degrees. Rinse salmon and pat dry. Place on foil lined baking sheet. Season salmon with olive oil, garlic, dill, and top with capers.
  2. In the rice cooker/steamer place rice along with two cups of water and green beans in the steamer basket. Cook for 15 minutes.
  3. Place seasoned fish in toaster oven, cook 12-18 minutes depending on thickness of fish.
  4. Once rice is complete remove from steamer and mix in grapeseed oil and basil.
  5. Once fully cooked remove salmon from the oven top with fresh lemon juice.
  6. Serve salmon, rice, and green beans.
