Thermos Featuring Thermos

My kids adore salmon.  It is one meal that everyone agrees on no matter how many times we have it for dinner nor how many ways we serve it.  I wanted to be able to send something to school that I knew would get eaten time and time again, and this has become a favorite for the lunch box as well.  I usually make this right before sending them out the door, but it can be made ahead and reheated before placing in the Kids Konserve thermos for faster prep in the mornings.

Teriyaki Salmon with Rice and Snow Peas
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1/8 teaspoon fresh black pepper
4 ounce salmon fillet
1 tablespoon oil
1/3 cup snow peas
1/2 cup steamed rice

In a deep plate, mix together soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic and both peppers.  Add in salmon.  Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes at room temperature.  Heat the oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat.  Add salmon fillet and cook on one side for four minutes.  Flip and continue cooking 2-3 minutes until just cooked through.  Remove salmon.  Add in snow peas and reserved marinade.  Cook for 5 minutes until peas are tender. 

Add hot steamed rice to a preheated Kids Konserve thermos.  Top with salmon and then snow peas and sauce.  Enjoy!
