Grilled Salmon with Boiled Carrots, Vegetable Medley and Brown Rice

I've been really enjoying using my time off to get back into cooking and baking.  I recently made this delicious and healthy meal and finished it off with a newly found favorite Malbec wine from Argentina.  I grilled the salmon and put it over a bed of brown rice with mixed veggies, sliced heirloom tomatoes and boiled carrots.  I hadn't had fish in a while, so it felt really good to get my iron fix.  This is something you could do any night of the week in combination with different types of protein.  I'll probably try it with grilled shrimp or chicken next time.  Anyway, I sauteed all the veggies with lots and lots of garlic and fresh basil.  I cooked the rice ahead of time and mixed in the veggies once I was done.  Sliced up teh tomatoes and plated as seen.  It was a much needed meal after such a long weekend!
