  1. 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice and 1½ cups water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes. Remove from burner and set aside. While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ¼" slices on an angle. Finely chop pickled ginger. Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Mince garlic. Combine garlic and sweet chili sauce in a mixing bowl. Set aside. Pat salmon fillets dry, and season flesh side with a pinch of pepper.

  3. 3

    Cook the Salmon

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and salmon, skin side up, to hot pan. Sear on one side until golden brown, 2-4 minutes. Transfer to prepared baking sheet, seared side up. Wipe pan clean and reserve. Roast in hot oven until salmon is firm and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 7-10 minutes. While salmon roasts, cook carrot.

  4. 4

    Cook the Carrot

    Return pan used to sear salmon to medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and carrot to hot pan. Stir often until lightly browned, 5-8 minutes. Add ¼ cup water and cover. Cook until water is mostly evaporated and carrots are tender, 2-3 minutes. Add white portions of green onion, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper and stir until coated in oil.
    Stir in sweet chili garlic sauce until carrot is coated. Remove from burner and cover.
