Recipe for Salmon with Lemon-Rice Stuffing

We eat salmon at least once a week, sometimes more often and this Salmon with Lemon-Rice Stuffing is great. I am always looking for new recipes for salmon. My husband can no longer eat grapefruit as it conflicts with his high cholesterol mediation so I use oranges for this recipe. It makes it slightly sweeter but still good tasting.
