With maple syrup, fresh lime, soy sauce & other robost seasonings this dish is bursting out with flavor. I haven’t made this in a while, but as I look at the great flavor combinations in this recipe, it’s a good reminder to make it again very soon!

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 4 salmon fillets (4 ounces each), skin removed

  • 2 teaspoons black sesame seeds 

Directions

  • Cook rice as directed on package.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
  • Sauté garlic and pepper flakes until garlic is lightly golden, 1 minute.
  • Add syrup, juice and soy sauce; cook until bubbling, 3 minutes.
  • In a bowl, combine cornstarch and 1 teaspoon water; stir into garlic glaze. Cook until slightly thick, 1 minute.
  • Arrange fillets on a foil-lined baking sheet. Spread 1 teaspoon glaze over each fillet.
