Brown Rice:
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
2 cups water
1 cup uncooked short- grain brown rice
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
Salt and freshly ground black pepper (optional)

4 skinless salmon fillets (about 4 ounces each)
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, pressed or minced
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp maple syrup
2 green onions, chopped


To make the rice, heat oil in a medium saucepan. Add onion and bell pepper; cook 3 minutes. Add water and rice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 50 minutes, or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.


Fluff with a fork; stir in parsley. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Meanwhile, place salmon in a pie plate or shallow dish. Combine remaining salmon ingredients; mix well.


Pour marinade over salmon; 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.
