Try This. ( Via BetterRecipes.com)

My childhood best friend, Courtney Riggin, won a recipe contest yesterday on betterrecipes.com! Check out her interview here.

Courtney says, “It’s so easy, yet it’s still elegant enough to pass as a last-minute or week-night special occasion meal or as a quick, simple family dish. Plus, it’s healthy and really dresses up the salmon flavor for those who might want the nutritional benefits but don’t necessarily enjoy the fishy flavor.”

1 package of quick-cooking seasoned long grain and wild rice mix
Olive oil
4 skinless salmon fillets (about 2 lbs total)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup peach preserves
1 tablespoon cider vinegar

Cook rice according to package directions. Preheat oven to 350°F. Drizzle a 13×9 inch non-stick baking dish evenly with a little olive oil. Lay fillets in baking dish. Combine the next four ingredients and rub onto the top of each fillet. Bake for 20 minutes or until salmon is opaque. Just before serving, microwave the peach preserves on high for 15-20 seconds in a microwave-safe container. Remove and stir in cider vinegar. Divide seasoned wild rice evenly among plates and lay one salmon fillet on the side of the rice. Use a spoon to spread or drizzle the peach sauce evenly over each fillet. Number of Servings: 4
