Summer Recipe: Cilantro Lime Rice w/ Salmon

Wednesday, August 8, 2018

Okay so I'll be honest. We don't cook much in the summer and we pretty much avoid using the oven in the summer evenings because it's just too hot. But after a few weeks (ahem months?) of BBQ I decided to switch it up and try something new! We had this short grain organic rice from Costco and my parents always have a freezer full of Alaskan Salmon so I decided to whip up something different. WE LOVED IT! It was so so easy. I cooked the rice in the rice cooker and Dylan took the zuccini and salmon out to the barbecue so no oven was needed and dinner was done in basically 15 minutes once the rice was done.

Rice
2 cups of rice 
1 bunch of fresh chopped Cilantro
2 LARGE limes
2 Tbs Butter
Pink Himalayan Salt
Garlic

Salmon
Lemon
Butter

Once the rice had finished cooking I just opened the lid and combined the ingredients straight into the bowl. First I added 2 tablespoons of butter and mixed it into the rice. I finely chopped 1 bunch of cilantro and squeezed 2 large limes over the rice and mixed that all together. Finally I added Pink Himalayan Salt and Garlic to taste and BAM! Amazing, zesty, and fresh cilantro lime rice.

For the salmon we kept it simple with fresh lemon and butter wrapped in foil and then cooked on the bqq. I love that it was healthy, easy to cook, and a nice change from pizza and burgers this summer.
