You never need to call for takeout again when you can whip up this all-in-one recipe in less than an hour. Salmon delivers heart-healthy omega 3s, while spinach contains plenty of protective antioxidants. 


  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each), skin removed
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 6 cups spinach
  • 2 teaspoons black sesame seeds



1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Cook rice according to package instructions.
2. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic and pepper flakes, and saute until garlic is lightly golden, 1 minute. Add syrup, lime juice, and soy sauce; cook until bubbling, 3 minutes.
3. In a bowl, combine cornstarch and water; stir into garlic glaze. Cook until slightly thick, 1 minute. Arrange salmon on a foil-lined baking sheet. Spread a little glaze over each fillet. Roast until just cooked through, 12 minutes. In a medium skillet, warm oil over medium heat. Add spinach and sauté until just wilted. Remove from pan; set aside.
4. Divide rice among four bowls; top each with spinach and 1 salmon fillet, broken into large pieces. Drizzle with remaining sauce and sprinkle with black sesame seeds.
