Have you ever looked at what is in foods these days? Have you ever wondered why life has gotten so crazy that we all rely on processed "quick" foods and fast foods? Well I have had my eyes opened recently when we started to realize our oldest child could be ADD. I decided to clean up our diets and turn out lives around. I am a woman, married to a wonderful man who supports everything I do. We have 3 wonderful children who keep us on our toes and every day when I pick them up from school the first things out of their mouths is "mommy what's for dinner" so here it is...

What's for dinner 11/14/10: Roasted Salmon with Snow Peas and Rice

So tonight's easy one pot meal was really nice...you can even serve it to special guest.  Tonight's Feingold friendly meal is roasted salmon with snow peas and rice.


Roasted Salmon with Snow Peas and Rice
Serves 4

1 cup jasmine rice
2 1/2 cups water
1 1/4 lb salmon
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 cups snow peas, trimmed
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 green onions, sliced
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp ginger, minced or grated
1 tbsp packed brown sugar
1) Mix the rice and water in a large skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.

2) Slice the salmon on a diagonal into thick serving pieces. Season with salt and pepper. Place on top of the partially cooked rice. Cover and cook 7 minutes.

3) Scatter the peas over the salmon and rice. Cover and cook until the rice and snow peas are tender and the salmon is opaque and beginning to flake, 3 to 5 minutes. Place the salmon on a plate and gently remove the skin. Continue cooking the rice, if necessary.

4) Mix the soy sauce, green onions, vinegar, ginger, and brown sugar in a small bowl. Spoon the sauce over the salmon, rice, and peas and serve.

VERDICT: This was really good, it can be made very elegant and best yet, you make it in 1 pan so less clean up.
