Steps

  • Glaze: In a small blender, combine the agave nectar, soy sauce, chipotles, chile powder and salt. Blend until smooth and set aside.Salmon: Spray a baking sheet with non stick cooking spray and place fillet on it. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  • Pour half of the glaze over the salmon.Preheat broiler on high.
  • Place salmon on bottom rack so it is not too close to the broiler. Broil for 10 - 12 minutes or until flakey and cooked through. (Cooking time may depend on how thick your fillet is.)Macadamia Cauliflower Rice: In a high powered blender or food processor, add the cauliflower florets and cover with water. Turn blender on medium, until cauliflower looks like rice.
  • Drain and place cauliflower in a towel. Ring out as much water as possible.
  • Place in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 8 minutes, or until the rice is tender. Season with the salt and garlic powder. Toss with macadamia nuts. Divide between 4 bowls.When salmon is finished cooking, cut salmon into 4 fillets and place on top of cauliflower rice.
  • Drizzle with remaining glaze, and garnish with cilantro and extra lime wedges.
