The quickest meals I’ve had are ones I didn’t have to make! Thankfully my husband is often willing to oblige since someone’s got to feed the baby and well… you know… he can’t. Actually my husband is a great cook and much more creative than I am. We spent a couple days out of town and came home to an empty frig so tonight we threw together our family favorite Salmon and Rice.
This is how I he did it.
- Thaw frozen salmon patties (mine were from Costco) under cool running water (I keep them in the plastic for this).
- Put rice in the rice cooker or on the stove to cook (remember 2:1 water to rice-Hubby doesn’t need reminding but I do)
- Place salmon in a microwave safe plate or glass pan and squeeze a lemon wedge (or lemon juice) onto the fish then sprinkle with dill seasoning and garlic
- Cover with plastic wrap, a plate or Press and Seal (did you know Press and Seal could be microwaved?)
- Cook on high until done. Approx. 3-6min depending on the size of the pieces. The key is to check the temp. It should register 130 degrees on an instant read therm. My favorite Goof (Hubby) wanted me to revise this adding that salmon is much better pan fried approx 8-10min on med/high if you have the time.
- Hopefully your rice is done now if you didn’t forget to put the rice cooker on “cook” instead of “warm” like I often do.
- Serve with rice and enjoy.
Veggies would be a nice touch but if you read this you’ll know why mine were absent.
For an even better night include a batch of my gooey brownies coming soon mentioned in a previous post.

A parting poem since I’m low on my own wit today
Simple Simon met a pieman going to the fair;
Said Simple Simon to the pieman “Let me taste your ware”
Said the pieman to Simple Simon “Show me first your penny”
Said Simple Simon to the pieman “Sir, I have not any!”
Simple Simon went a-fishing for to catch a whale;
All the water he had got was in his mother’s pail.
Simple Simon went to look if plums grew on a thistle;
He pricked his fingers very much which made poor Simon whistle.
He went for water in a sieve but soon it all fell through;
And now poor Simple Simon bids you all “adieu”
