Monday: Orange-Maple Salmon

This is a standard request from my youngest. The fact that the whole dinner is ready in 30 minutes means she gets to have it a lot!
Serves: 4      Prep: 5, 30 minutes marinating      Cooking: 30 minutes


For the Salmon
1/3 cup real maple syrup
1/3 cup orange juice
1 ½  tablespoons soy sauce
¼ cup onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
4 (5-6 oz) salmon filets 
For the Broccoli
1 head or 4 cups broccoli florets
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
1 tablespoon olive oil, optional For the Rice
1 package frozen brown rice
1 tablespoon butter
½ teaspoon kosher salt


Prep Opportunity
In a large sealable plastic bag, combine the maple syrup, orange juice, soy sauce, onion, and garlic. Add the salmon and seal the bag, gently massaging until the marinade is evenly distributed over the salmon filets. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes or in the fridge for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 375º.
In a baking dish, empty contents of the plastic bag (including the liquid) and arrange salmon filets in one layer.
Roast for 10 - 12 minutes or until salmon is tender and flakes easily when forked. (We like our salmon cooked through so I add 5-7 minutes)
Meanwhile, place the broccoli, garlic and salt in a shallow pan with ¾ cup of water.
Bring to a simmer and cover. Cook for 5 minutes – check to be sure it doesn’t over cook.
Remove from broccoli from pan and set aside. Toss with olive oil if desired.
Cook the rice and toss with butter and salt.
Serve salmon filets with broccoli and rice.
