Garlic Lemon Salmon with Peppers and Brown Rice

This healthy, gluten-free dinner was so delicious, colorful and easy to make! On my latest trip to Costco, I purchased a huge piece of Salmon which I cut into four 2-fillet size servings each (I know, this thing was huge!) and then put into the freezer-so expect more Salmon recipes soon.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Dinner, Fish, Salmon
Serves: 4
  • 4 salmon fillets (mine were about 6oz each)
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • ½ of a lemon
  • 3 bell peppers, cut into stripes (I had one yellow, orange and red, but green would be great too)
  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice
  • For seasoning the salmon & bell peppers: garlic salt, salt and pepper
  • For the peppers -sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes
  1. Prepare the brown rice according to directions (the organic one I used takes 50 min, so I start on that first).
  2. In a pan heat 1.5 Tbs of the EVOO and add to it 3 of the crushed garlic cloves. Add the salmon fillets, season each side with garlic salt, salt and pepper and cook each side for about 6-8 minutes. When you are almost done cooking the salmon, add 1 Tbs butter and squeeze juice of half a lemon and then turn off the heat and let butter melt.
  3. In another pan, add remaining EVOO and 2 crushed garlic cloves, add pepper strips, season them, I added a sprinkling of crushed red pepper flakes to the bell peppers.
  4. To assemble divide rice and peppers among 4 bowls, then add the salmon and a dribbles of the butter lemon sauce to each bowl and enjoy!
