Recipe Directions for Asian Salmon with Brown Rice

For rice, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell pepper; cook 3 minutes. Add water and rice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 50 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Fluff with fork; stir in parsley. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Makes 2 3/4 cup rice. Meanwhile, in a pie plate or shallow dish combine oil, garlic, ginger, soy, maple syrup and green onions; mix well. Add salmon and turn to coat; let stand 15 to 20 minutes. Heat a ridged grill pan over medium heat until hot. Add salmon, discarding marinade; cook 3 to 4 minutes per side or until salmon is opaque and firm to the touch. Serve with brown rice.
