This recipe for asian salmon with spinach and brown rice was modified from a recipe I found on a blog called “For the Love of Basil.” My version uses brown rice instead of white, arrowroot instead of corn starch, and fresh spinach instead of frozen. I made these substitutions because I believe they are healthier and any little change I can make to a recipe to make it healthier is worth it.
Incidentally I also used white sesame seeds but only because I tend to have them on hand, unlike the black ones she uses, which I don’t think I’ve ever bought in my life. As far as I know there is no difference in the nutritional value of black vs. white sesame seeds.
Oh yeah, and as usual I adjusted the prep time because limes don’t juice themselves and garlic doesn’t mince itself.
