  5. Once the salmon is done, use two forks and shred salmon (as you would chicken) into bite sized pieces. Set aside.
  6. To assemble the lettuce wraps: Add 2-3 spoonfuls of brown rice to a lettuce scoop. Next, add 3-4 heaping spoonfuls of coleslaw, followed by desired chunks of salmon. Drizzle 1-2 spoonfuls of sauce and top with lemon wedges & sesame seeds if desired.
  7. Enjoy!

This is the perfect recipe for the upcoming season of lent! If you feel your dinner routine has become monotonous & repetitive, give this delicious recipe a try! Salmon is low in saturated fat, a good source of protein, and is packed with nutrients (try omega-3s, B12, potassium, and vitamin D).
