2pouchesBen’s Ready Rice Jasmine Rice(or use 1 pouch per person, if you have a hungry family)
2-4teaspoonsblackened seasoningor to taste
1can black beansdrained and rinsed
1can corn kernelsdrained and rinsed
½red onionthinly sliced
½cupfresh cilantro leaves
1limesliced into wedges
Optional: salt and pepperto taste
Pat the salmon fillets dry and season each one with ½ - 1 teaspoon with blackened seasoning, to taste (see notes for a non-spicy option). Check your seasoning packaging to see if it has sodium/salt added. If not, you should also season each salmon fillet with a pinch of salt.
Preheat a large non-stick skillet, and place the salmon on the skillet skin-down. Cook over medium-low heat for 3-4 minutes, or until the bottom half of the salmon turns pink. Carefully flip the salmon and cook on the other side for about 3-4 minutes, or until the salmon is fully cooked.
While the salmon is cooking, prepare the rice in the microwave: follow the instructions on the rice packaging to squeeze the pouch to separate the rice. Tear two inches at the top to vent the pouches, and cook 2 pouches for 2.5 minutes.
Prepare the rest of the ingredients: rinse the black beans and corn. If you like, you can heat the black beans and corn up in a skillet or the microwave, and stir in a few pinches of blackened seasoning. Slice your avocado, and pluck off some cilantro leaves. Thinly slice the red onion. Slice the lime into wedges.
Assemble the bowls: divide the rice between 4 bowls. Top with cooked salmon fillets, black beans, corn, avocado, and cilantro. Squeeze some lime over the whole bowl and enjoy!
Non-spicy option: blackened seasoning can be a little spicy, so if you have kids or anyone in the family who doesn't want any spice, simply use taco seasoning instead or a little salt, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder.Extra hungry? Each pouch of Ben’s rice can serve 1-2 people, depending on how hungry you are. If preparing 3 pouches, cook 2 pouches for 2.5 minutes, and then the third one for 90 seconds. If preparing 4 pouches, cook 2 at a time for 2.5 minutes each. The nutrition facts are estimated assuming ½ pouch per serving.Optional add-ons:
