Ingredients
Directions
  1. Prepare brown rice according to package directions.
  2. While the rice is cooking, preheat broiler.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine fat-free mayonnaise, lemon-pepper seasoning, and the juice of one lemon.
  4. Lightly coat a broiler pan with cooking spray. Place salmon fillets on the broiler pan (skin-side down) and brush lemon pepper sauce over the top. Broil salmon approximately 6 inches from the broiler until the fillets are cooked through and flake easily with a fork, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  5. While the salmon is broiling, steam the broccoli in a covered pan for 6 to 8 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  6. Stir the green onion and parsley into the cooked rice.
  7. Place portions of salmon and rice on two separate plates along with a serving of broccoli. Top the salmon and broccoli with a squeeze of fresh lemon. Serve and enjoy!
Tasteful Tip

Well-done, medium, or a little on the rare side: How you like your salmon doesn't really affect the quality of the essential fatty acids (EFAs) that are abundantly supplied in this especially nutritious fish. EFAs are important because they play a vital role in maintaining the proper biological functioning of everything from muscles to memory. One of the reasons salmon tastes so good is because our bodies crave these essential fats!
