  • For the rice:
  • 1-2 cups of brown rice or Quinoa (I like to use half Quinoa and half Brown rice)
  • 3 cups of water to boil the rice
  • 1-1/2 cups of blueberries
  • 3-4 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil

  • 3-4 sprigs of thyme
  • 3 teaspoons of sea salt
How to make it:
  1. For the rice:
  2. Put the rice and water to boil.
  3. Once the rice is cooked and there is a little rice liquid left, add the blueberries, salt, and olive oil, curry and thyme. Mix in and leave for about 5 minutes.
  4. Check the mixture, and smoosh the blueberries with your mixing instrument until a purple hue is seen.
  5. Stir well and leave for 5 minutes or until rice is finished.
  6. For the Salmon:
  7. Clean fish to liking, and soak in fresh lemon juice water (just water with a few lemons and their juice squeezed in it).
  8. Leave for 30 minutes.
  9. Mince the garlic cloves very well.
  10. Put the garlic, thyme, fish, molasses, and the fresh squeezed juice from the half of the lemon and thyme all in a zip lock bag that will fit all the fish, and shake and squeeze all the ingredient together, leaving it to marinade for at-least an hour or over-night.
  11. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  12. Put the marinated fish on a thin cooking sheet.
  13. Bake for about 20 mins or longer as needed.
  14. ENJOY :)
