Quick 20 minute dinner! Cheddar and Broccoli rice with Salmon Fillets

Today I found out that my friend and neighbor lost her father a couple of days ago.  I wanted to do something nice so decided to make her a dinner for tonight.  Not much but at least it takes one worry away.

However, I had already planned our dinner and had it cooking.  I really didn't want to start cooking a second meal.  Looking through the cupboards I found I had a package of Knorr Cheddar and Broccoli Rice and it could be cooked in the microwave.  So I grabbed a bowl and started it cooking.  While it was cooking I took out two frozen salmon fillets and started thawing them out in a bowl of water. 

Once the rice was done I tossed the fillets into a ziplock zip and steam bag, added in a little lemon pepper seasoning and threw them in the microwave for about 5 minutes. 

While they were cooking I put the rice into a large plastic container (not pretty but I don't have to worry about getting one of my nice dishes back), then I topped it with the cooked salmon. 

Ready to go!  It actually looked and smelled wonderful and my neighbor was very pleased by the gesture.  I wish I had taken a picture to show off but I was in a hurry.
