  2. Add water to approximately 1 inch or 1 finger joint above the rice.
  3. Add salt if desired.
  4. Cook on medium to medium-high heat until the water has boiled down to the level of the rice.
  5. Reduce heat to low. Cover and continue to cook for 12-15 minutes. Do not stir or uncover.
  6. Turn off heat and allow the rice to steam undisturbed for at least 15 minutes.
  7. Fluff with a fork before serving.
  8. For the Salmon fillet:

  9. Season salmon fillets with lemon pepper, garlic powder, and salt.
  10. In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and vegetable oil until sugar is dissolved.
  11. Coat the fish in with this mixture and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  12. Preheat grill on medium heat.
