In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high. Season salmon with salt and pepper and cook until opaque throughout, 1 to 3 minutes per side; transfer to a plate. Wipe skillet clean with a paper towel.

Brown rice takes about 45 minutes to cook, so start it ahead of time. Agave nectar is a diabetes-friendly sweetener that rounds out the flavor of the sauce.
