Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with foil.

  • Place salmon on the prepared baking sheet, skin-side down, and sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt. Combine chipotle and honey in a small bowl and brush on the salmon. Bake until the salmon flakes easily with a fork, 6 to 12 minutes depending on thickness.

  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add cauliflower rice and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and hot, about 3 minutes. Add carrots and peas and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until hot, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in almonds, cilantro, Parmesan, lime juice and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. Serve the salmon with the pilaf.
