Mondays are hard enough to get through without the nagging question that lurks all day: “What should I make for dinner?” This recipe, which includes a quick-cooking black sticky rice, is great for a Meatless Monday meal or even for a special dinner.
Several components make this meal great. The Asian-inspired glaze is wonderful with its burst of citrus and zesty ginger. It's a bit sweet but still has a bite. Grilling the salmon makes cooking a breeze and if you decide to include a veggie side dish like asparagus that can also be grilled, it's even better! Let's not forget that cutting meat from your meals, even one day a week, can be good for your health and the environment.
What gives this dish the extra exotic (and healthy) vibe? The Annie Chun’s Rice Express Black Pearl Sticky Rice. Black rice has been making its way onto the scene lately, and it can be a nice change of pace from white rice. However, the slow-cooking version can take about 30 minutes to cook. That's fine when you have time. When you don't, Annie Chun’s Rice Express Black Pearl Sticky Rice is the perfect solution. Annie Chun’s products give consumers a choice of great-tasting, convenient Pan-Asian meal options, including many that are gluten-free, vegetarian and organic.
The Black Pearl Sticky Rice is pre-steamed with no added oil or salt, and it's low-fat, all natural and gluten-free. One of the best parts: it's ready, out of the microwave, in about 90 seconds. Two packages of the rice make enough for about four servings.
