Honey-Soy Baked Salmon with Forbidden Rice

Ingredients:

  • 1 salmon fillet
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • A handful of asparagus
  • 2 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic/ 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp Black mustard seeds (very rich in phyto-nutrients, minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants)
  • Pineapple slices (optional)

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
  • Rinse the salmon fillet under cold water, then pat dry. Take half a lemon, squeeze it while rubbing it on the salmon skin. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cut a wide piece of foil (that will be big enough to fold it over the center and up on the ends), and place it on a baking tray.
  • For the glaze: In a small bowl, combine together the soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, ginger, and the garlic. Set aside
  • Start by placing the asparagus
