Place the sections amid the onion in the baking dish. Place the salmon on top of the orange and onion. Season with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper (to taste), dill, garlic powder, and olive oil. Set aside.
3 – Place two-thirds cup of brown rice in a covered baking dish. Add two-thirds cup of water. Season with one-half teaspoon of salt and a little olive oil. Stir. Microwave on high for 5 minutes.
4 – Slice the avocado and sprinkle with olive oil. Place on a serving plate.
5 – Microwave the salmon for 6 minutes on high (more because of the bulk of the oranges). When finished, test the center to be sure that the salmon is done. If not, microwave for 1 minute more.
6 – Serve the salmon, hot, on top of the rice, with the lima bean as a side. Serve the avocado cold.
