  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Main Dish

 Ingredients List

  • 4 tbsp lime juice, separated
  • 1 tsp dried cilantro
  • 1 tbsp honey (21g)
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • About 1/2 lb raw kale chopped
  • 3-4 scallions diced
  • 2 cups of cooked brown rice (I use the 90 second bagged kind)
  • About 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • Kosher Salt


Whisk 2 tbsp of lime juice with 1 tbsp honey, 1 tsp of dried cilantro and a pinch of salt to make the marinade.

Pour the marinade over the salmon and let sit while preparing the rice.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray. add the kale, 1 tbsp of the lime juice and a pinch or two of salt. Cook for about a minute until wilting.

Add the scallions, brown rice, cilantro, remaining tbsp of lime juice and another pinch of salt. Combine everything well allowing the flavors to merge.

Heat a second skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Cook the salmon 2-3 minutes a side depending on thickness. After the first flip pour any leftover marinade over the fillets.

Serve the salmon over the rice with another veggie on the side. I went with broccoli. One veggie all three of us can agree on. ;)

No nutritional info on this one.. it”™s 2 salmon servings, 3 rice servings and my brain just can”™t handle it right now. lol According to my “Roni Math” I”™d count the salmon and 1/3 of the rice as 9 points.
