Ginger Orange Salmon with Rice & Mixed Green Salad

baked salmon with side of rice and mixed greens

This plate beautifully showcases how I love to eat…fish with flavour, a big side of mixed greens, and rice with my favourite additions of feta and tomatoes.  In my opinion, this plate has all you need, and makes for a delicious lunch or light supper.  I tend to make more than we need at night to ensure this momma gets a healthy plate the day after.  This ‘recipe’ is more of an overall suggestion, rather than it being an exact science.  I will confess, most of my food is like that.  I cook more out of sight and smell than I do out of cups.  Enjoy!



Salmon fillet, usually 1 per person
Orange Juice, enough to cover Salmon in shallow container
About a tbsp. of Ginger, grated
Rice, cooked to package instructions
Mixed greens, store-bought
Tomatoes, roughly chopped
Feta, crumbled
Fresh Lemon Juice
Kosher Salt and Fresh Pepper, to taste
Drizzle of EVOO


Turn convection oven on to 350~.

On stove top, prepare rice as per package instructions.  I usually have about 1/2 cup on the plate, per person.

Place the salmon in a shallow dish.  Cover with Orange Juice and freshly grated ginger.  Let sit for 30 minutes.  Once oven is ready, place fillets on cookie sheet and cook until there is just a bit of raw salmon in centre, about 15 minutes.

Rough chop some tomatoes.  Grab a handful of prepared mixed greens.  Once rice is cooked, scoop out serving onto plate.  Drizzle with EVOO, and season to taste with S&P.  Add the tomatoes, as much as you like.  Add the mixed greens.  Add crumbled feta cheese.  Give a good squeeze of lemon juice, and toss.  Taste, and re-season if necessary.

Once salmon is cooked, place onto plate with salad.  Squeeze fresh lemon juice on top.  Season to taste.

That’s it!  Fresh, light, flavourful.  Couldn’t be better.
