This speedy salmon recipe couldn't be any easier. The store-bought sesame ginger dressing saves time and adds extra flavor to this healthy dish. — Naylet LaRochelle, Miami, Florida

  • 4 salmon fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup sesame ginger salad dressing, divided
  • 3 cups hot cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup julienned carrot
  • Thinly sliced red cabbage, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Place salmon in a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. pan; brush with 1/4 cup dressing. Bake until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, toss rice with cilantro and salt.
  2. To serve, divide rice mixture among 4 bowls. Top with salmon, carrot and, if desired, cabbage. Drizzle with remaining dressing.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Sometimes 4-ounce salmon fillets are hard to find. Another option is to simply buy a 1-pound fillet and cut it into four portions.
  • People seem to love or hate cilantro. If it’s not your favorite, omit the cilantro and add some chopped fresh parsley instead.
