Rice bowls are a favorite in our kitchen since they are infinitely customizable and fun to put together depending on the available ingredients. Today we have a bowl of brown rice topped with seared salmon, shiitake, and asparagus – all done with one skillet! Minus the brown rice, that we have our Instant Pot to thank for.
Anyone else think “chunking” is a weird word? Current thoughts at the moment as we try to decide what word best describes breaking apart a fillet with a spoon… What verb would you use? The chunking of the cooked salmon fillet is optional, but we think that it makes for a nice presentation.
Anyway, moving on. For dinner tonight we have a simple recipe of pan-seared salmon over shredded brussel sprouts with a side of beets. Cook the beets first. The preparation of the beets we kept simple, quickly peeling and getting them into a pot of boiling, salted water at the beginning as they can take a while to cook through. The rest of the dish comes together quickly, and all of the knife-work can be done while the beets are cooking away.
