Oven-Baked Salmon and Sunshine Rice

Oven-Baked Salmon and Sunshine Rice

Serves 4
Here's an oven-baked dish that's a nice solution for weeknights as it cooks hands free and all in one pot. Serve with cooked greens or a big salad alongside and dinner is done. If you're not crazy about curry powder, swap in dried dill instead, though your rice won't be quite as "sunny."
Ingredients: 
  • 1 cup long-grain brown rice
  • 2 cups small cauliflower florets
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added, fire-roasted diced tomatoes, with their liquid
  • 1 lemon, halved, divided
  • 3/4 pound skinless salmon fillet, pin bones removed, cut into large chunks
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley or cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided

Method: 
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add rice and toast, stirring often, until fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in cauliflower, 1 1/2 cups water, onion, curry powder, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, tomatoes with their liquid and juice from 1 lemon half. Cover tightly with foil and the Dutch oven lid and bake until rice is almost tender, 1 to 1 1/4 hours. 

Season salmon on all sides with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Arrange salmon in a single layer on top of rice and continue to bake, uncovered, until salmon is just cooked through, about 10 minutes more; garnish with parsley. Cut remaining lemon half into wedges and serve alongside to squeeze over the top.
