For Salmon:

Dried Cherry Saffron Rice:


  1. Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil and place in broiler.

Place fillets skin side down on baking sheet. Broil for 6 minutes. Spoon glaze over each fillet, top each with an orange slice and broil for another 2 minutes.
  4. Serve glazed salmon fillets hot garnished with almonds.
