This is the best summer recipe! It's quick to make and doesn't heat up your house! Healthy, light and delicious Salmon Rice!

Salmon Rice is the perfect spring recipe! Light, quick, and easy to make! Plus this recipe only needs 3 ingredients!

Summer is here! With the freedom of summer comes the anticipation of outings and adventures. During these balmy days I like to take my girls outside to enjoy nature and the sunshine. Sometimes we’re having so much fun that we get home and I’m scrambling to make something for dinner.

I think every family has a default meal that they prepare when they’re in a crunch for time.

This salmon rice recipe is my family’s favourite. I can usually throw it together because it only needs three ingredients (four if you count the soy sauce you serve on top of it)! Plus, it takes less than half an hour to prepare!
