Prep Time: 2 hrs.
Cook Time: 30 min.
Preheat oven to 375˚F. Place rice, sugar and tea leaves in a medium bowl and stir gently to combine.
Line a deep baking pan with aluminum foil. Place rice-tea mixture over foil and place another piece of foil over top to enclose the mixture.
Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Spray wire rack with cooking spray, place over top of foil packet and place salmon atop.
Cover with foil and bake for 20-30 minutes, until the internal temperature of the fish reaches 145˚F.
Use a spatula to remove salmon fillets from rack or foil; discard rice-tea mixture. Garnish with lemon wedges if desired.
Note: As rice-tea mixture begins to smoke, a strong burnt aroma will arise. Opening a window and discarding smoke mixture outdoors will limit the smell.
