  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar or brown sugar substitute equivalent to 1 tablespoon brown sugar (see Tip)

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Thaw salmon, if frozen. Preheat oven to 450°F. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Measure thickness of fish. Place fish in a greased shallow baking pan.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together coriander seeds, brown sugar, and lemon-pepper seasoning. Sprinkle fish evenly with coriander seeds mixture; use your fingers to press in slightly. Bake for 4 to 6 minutes per ½-inch thickness of fish or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together cooked rice, mango, the snipped cilantro, and the lemon peel. Serve fish on top of rice mixture. If desired, garnish with lemon wedges and/or cilantro sprigs.
  • Tips: You can substitute 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (toasted if desired) and ¼ teaspoon ground cumin for the crushed coriander seeds.
