Sweet-N-Smoky Salmon With Ginger Mahogany Rice

Ingredients

4 Salmon fillets, with or with out skin
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke
1/3 cup or more brown sugar + a little extra for sprinkling
1 cup mahogany rice
2 Tb. peanut oil, separated
2 cups chicken stock
3 inches piece of ginger
Salt and Pepper

Preparation

1
Place the salmon in bowl, or large zip bag with soy sauce, liquid smoke and brown sugar. Let it marinate for at least 1 hour—but you could marinate over night! When ready to use, preheat the grill or an iron skillet to high heat.
2
In a medium sauce pan, over high heat, toast the rice in 1 Tb. of oil for 2 minutes. Then add the chicken stock and a large pinch of salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cover. Simmer the rice for about 40 minutes—or as directed on the package.
3
Meanwhile, peel the ginger and cut into thin strips. (julienne)
4
Heat a small skillet over medium-high. Add 1 Tb. of oil to the skillet. When the oil is hot, drop the ginger in and pan-fry for 1-2 minutes, moving with a spatula, until they are light brown.
5
Remove from the pan and drain on a paper towel. Sprinkle with salt.
6
While the rice is cooking, CAREFULLY brush the grill with vegetable oil. (You could also use grill spray.) Pepper the salmon and place it on the grill, top-side-down. Cook 3 minutes.
7
Flip, then carefully sprinkle the tops with a little extra brown sugar and grill for another 3-5 minutes—until just cooked through.
8
Cover with foil and let them rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Gosh, that looks good. Never had flash fried ginger before, nor mahogany rice. But, I wouldn't mind trying it:)

Now, if I could only get myself to make it... hee hee.

Great site, Patricia!

About

This dish is a perfect example of simple, flavorful cooking. I marinated the salmon in soy sauce, brown sugar and liquid smoke. The liquid smoke gives the salmon the essence of fish cooked over a cedar plank--without having to make a trip to the lumberyard! The modest rice dish is elevated by crispy, flash-fried ginger strips. Throw is a veggie and you have a wonderful, healthy dinner!
