Lisa's Salmon on the Green

Introduction

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    Lemon Juice, 1 wedge yields
    Atlantic Salmon (fish), .5 fillet
    Spinach, fresh, 1.5 cup
    Red Ripe Tomatoes, .5 cup, chopped or sliced
    Brown Rice, long grain, .75 cup
    Parmesan Cheese, grated, .25 tbsp
    *Extra Virgin Olive Oil, .5 tbsp
    Garlic, 1.5 tsp
    Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions

This is super easy to make. (If you cannot eat seafood you may substitute salmon with chicken)

First Cook one cup of Brown rice and when it's done set it aside.

Second pull out your George Foreman Grill. Lightly spray it with cooking spray and plug it up! Or you if you're feeling adventurous, light up your outdoor grill for added flavor. Season your salmon with salt and pepper to taste and place it on your grill, cooking it until it gently flakes.

While your salmon is cooking, dice up 1/2 cup of tomatoes. Mix the tomatoes into the rice and keep warm. Slice your lemon wedge(s) and set them aside.

If your not like me and buy the jar of minced garlic in the produce department then you will also need to mince your garlic cloves.
Next in a non-stick pan put 1-heaping teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil and put the heat on medium. Let the pan get nice and hot. When the pan is hot, toss in your garlic and constantly stir for about 45 seconds. Next, toss in your fresh spinach and turn it for 60-90 seconds depending on how firm or tender you like your leaf.

Now everything should be done time to put it all together. Spread your rice and tomatoes on the plate to serve as the bed of the meal. Next sprinkle a layer of freshly grated parmesan cheese on top (or if you are being bad, shredded instead). Next layer your spinach a top of the rice, and then place your salmon filet on top of the spinach or should I say the green. Squeeze your lemon wedge over the entire entree and there you have it a quick, satisfying and delicious meal that I throw together at a moments notice. Bon appetite!
