This is a really easy recipe to make because the salmon and asparagus are both baked and the rice simmers away on top of the stove, so everything should be ready at the same time. If you have two ovens, you can cook the asparagus at 400 degrees F and the salmon at 350 degrees F, both for twenty minutes. If you are like most people and only have one, you will need to give the asparagus ten minutes more than the fish, as the recipe shows you.

You might like to use a combination of white rice and wild rice if you prefer that to using mixed grain rice. The wild rice has a longer cooking time so you will need to start that about forty five minutes before adding the white rice to the pot. Check the packages for the exact cooking times, to ensure both kinds of rice are ready at the same time.

You can cook the rice in water instead of broth, if you would rather, but the broth does give it a special taste. The tablespoon of butter stirred into the rice is optional but it makes the rice extra creamy and delicious. This simple salmon recipe is healthy, well-balanced and full of wonderful flavor. It makes a delicious meal for the whole family.

Photo Description:

As the picture shows, the salmon takes on a nice, dark color because of the teriyaki sauce and this sauce also adds moisture to the rice. The asparagus gives a nice color contrast and the rice is great with the fish. There are potatoes in the photo too but, to be honest, the rice gives you all the carbohydrates you need and this mouthwatering trio of teriyaki salmon, fluffy rice and tender asparagus is all you need to fill your family up and give them a delicious salmon dinner to remember.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
