Salmon with Mustard Sauce

The quest for healthy eating continues. This quest includes brown rice. I actually made this on Saturday for my boyfriend, Stephen and I. I wasn't entirely sure what he would say about the brown rice, especially because it wasn't his beloved coconut rice. So I mixed some coconut milk in his rice at the end, and if he noticed, he made no mention. The salmon and rice was not quite enough for him though, so he had some soup to go along side.

Salmon with Mustard Sauce
Salmon fillets
Old Bay seasoning
Salt and pepper
Dijon mustard
Spicy Brown mustard
Agave nectar

Season salmon with Old Bay seasoning, salt and pepper. Mix together equal parts of Dijon mustard, spicy brown mustard and agave nectar. Set aside. In skillet, cook salmon over medium high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Drizzle mustard sauce over salmon.

Brown Rice with Mushrooms and Onions
2 c. instant brown rice
1 onion, thinly sliced
3 c. sliced mushrooms
Salt and pepper
1/2 c. coconut milk, optional

Cook rice according to package directions. In large skillet, saute onions over medium low heat for about 10-15 minutes, or until they start to caramelize. Add mushrooms and cook for additional 5 -7 minutes, or until mushrooms are browned. Season with salt and pepper. If desired, mix in coconut milk. Mix in brown rice.
