This baked salmon preparation is an appealing low calorie main dish. Seasoned with brown sugar, cilantro and lemon-pepper, and paired with white rice flavored with mangos, cilantro, and lemon zest, it makes a satisfying meal.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Lightly grease a shallow 9x13 baking dish.
  2. Combine the coriander seed, brown sugar, and lemon-pepper seasoning in a small bowl, and blend well.
  3. Place the salmon fillet skin side down in the prepared baking dish. Brush top and sides of fillet with the butter. Sprinkle the fish evenly with the coriander spice mixture, gently pressing it into the fish.
  4. Stir the mango, cilantro, and lemon peel into the rice. Spoon the rice mixture around the fish in the baking dish.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2 inch thickness. Cut the fish into 4 pieces. Divide rice between 4 serving plates and place the fish on top.

This was good but would have been better with a few alterations. Mainly, I wouldn't have baked the rice with the fish. My rice was cooked and when I put it in with the fish it ended up getting rather crispy in the oven. I would mix the rice and heat it up on the stove to mix in the flavors and then serve the fish on top.

We love this so much because it is so simple and taste. I did not have coriander seed so I did not use it.

This was a really great way to serve salmon. I also cooked the rice mixture seperately to the salmon and cooled it as a salad type side dish, as well as adding raisins. The salmon just melted in my mouth and I enjoyed the fresh flavour of the mango and cilantro.
