Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |

  1. 1

    Start the Orzo

    Turn oven on to 400 degrees. Let preheat, at least 10 minutes. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry.

    Zest and halve lemon lengthwise. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    In provided tray, combine orzo, garlic salt, 1 tsp. lemon zest, and 2 tsp. lemon juice. Cover tray with foil.

    Bake covered in hot oven until orzo is warmed through, 8-10 minutes.

    While orzo bakes, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Sear Salmon and Add Spinach

    Pat salmon dry and season flesh side with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and salmon, skin-side up, to hot pan. Sear until golden-brown on one side, 2-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Carefully remove tray from oven. Push orzo to one side and top with spinach and butter. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil.

    Transfer salmon, skin-side down, to now-empty side of tray.

  3. 3

    Bake the Meal

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until salmon is firm and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 8-10 minutes.

    While salmon bakes, combine balsamic glaze and peach preserves in a mixing bowl.

    Coarsely crush almonds in shipping bag.

    Carefully remove tray from oven. Stir spinach into orzo and garnish with cheese.

    To serve, top salmon with balsamic-peach glaze and almonds. Squeeze lemon wedges over salmon to taste. Bon appétit!
