I can't take a nice food picture for the life of me...I know this is yet another dish that does not look appetizing but it is! Provided that you like salmon :) And yes...that is a picture of salmon!

It's a quick, easy, and relatively healthy dish that you can prepare and serve in about 30 minutes.

  • 2 salmon fillets
  • ¾ cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tbs sesame seeds, toasted
  • 2 tbs water
  • 2 radishes, grated
  • 2 tbs chopped chives
  • 1 cup minute rice
  • 2 tsp sesame oil

  • Preheat oven to 475 F.
  • Place salmon in a shallow square baking dish. Brush top of fillets with 1 tbs teriyaki sauce, coating evenly.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Stir water into remaining sauce and pour around salmon.
  • Bake for 10-15 min depending on thickness of fillets, until salmon is just cooked through and sauce is bubbling. Remove salmon from heat.
  • In a small bowl, gently mix together radish and chives. Serve over rice and dress fillets with sauce from baking dish, top with radish mixture and drizzle with sesame oil.
