cutting board and knife

Step 1: Cook the Rice
BOIL 1-1/4 cups water over high heat in a medium saucepan.
STIR in the multigrain rice and cover with a lid.
REDUCE the heat to medium-low and cook for 25–30 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
Step 2: Prepare the Salmon
SEASON the salmon fillets with magic seasoning and lemon pepper.
MELT the butter in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
PLACE the salmon fillets in the skillet, skin side down.
Step 3: Baste the Salmon
SPOON the butter over the fillets to baste. (The butter will brown, and that’s yummy!)
REDUCE heat to medium-low.
BASTE the salmon with butter for 10–12 minutes until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
TRANSFER the salmon to serving plates.
Step 4: Top with Lemon
SLICE the lemon into rounds.
SQUEEZE a lemon slice over each fillet and lay the lemon on top.
Step 5: Mix the Salsa
CUT the avocado in half and remove the pit.
SCOOP out the avocado and cut it into chunks.
PEEL the cutie orange and cut it into bite-sized pieces. Discard the peel.
MIX the lime juice crystals with 1 tablespoon of warm water until dissolved in a small bowl.
COMBINE the chopped avocado, chopped orange, lime juice, cashews, mint, cilantro, onion, and cucumber in a medium bowl.
SEASON to taste with salt and pepper.
Step 6: Serve It Up
STIR the lemon olive oil into the cooked rice and season to taste with salt and pepper.
SPOON the salsa over each salmon fillet.
SERVE with the rice and enjoy!

Wine: Frei Brothers Chardonnay (Sonoma)
This Chardonnay displays flavors of green apple, orange zest and apple pie, complemented by notes of butter and toast. The rich, nutty flavors lead to a silky finish and a plush mouthfeel.
Beer: Boulevard Tank 7
A variation on a traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, this beer begins with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, then tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.
