Size: 4 servings

Ingredients:
1 cup jasmine rice
2 tsp unsalted butter
1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
3 tbsp pure maple syrup
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
3 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp cornstarch
4 salmon fillets (4 oz each), skin removed
1 tsp canola oil
2 pkg (5 oz each) baby spinach
2 tsp black sesame seeds (Whole Foods)

Directions:

Heat oven to 400F.  Cook rice as directed on package.

In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.  Saute garlic and pepper flakes until garlic is lightly golden, 1 minute.  Add syrup, juice and soy sauce; cook until bubbling, 3 minutes.

In a bowl, combine cornstarch and 1 teaspoon water; stir into garlic glaze.  Cook until slightly thick, 1 minute.

Arrange fillets on a foil-lined baking sheet.  Spread 1 teaspoon glaze over each fillet.  Roast until just cooked through, 12 minutes.

In a medium skillet, warm oil over medium heat.  Add 1 package spinach; saute until just wilted.  Remove from pan; set aside.  Repeat with second package spinach.

Divide rice among 4 bowls; top each with 1/4 spinach and 1 salmon fillet, broken into large pieces. Drizzle with remaining sauce; sprinkle each with 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds.
