Salmon….It’s whats for dinner

Posted on

I scored a sale on some wild Pacific Salmon in the grocery store and tonight decided to try something different. I had found a recipe from user MTOUSSAINT on All Recipes The users gave it five of five stars so I had to see what the fuss was all about.

This recipe is pretty straight forward, easy to make and has great flavors. The users that critiqued the recipe made suggestions of pasta instead of rice, canned tomatoes, and dried parsley in place of fresh and raved about its flexibility. I used fresh tomatoes and pureed half in the Cuisinart, and put the other half in in quarters. I loved the flavors and ease of the recipe. So here it is! Try it for yourself! Let me know what you think.

Salmon with Tomatoes

1 cup uncooked long grain
white rice
2 cups water

2 1/2 tablespoons garlic oil
2 (6 ounce) fillets salmon
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/4 teaspoon paprika to taste
2 fresh tomatoes, diced
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons chopped fresh
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons butter
4 dashes hot pepper sauce

1.In a medium saucepan, bring the rice and water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook 20 minutes.
2.Heat the garlic oil in a skillet over medium heat. Season the salmon with salt, pepper, dill, and paprika, and cook in the hot oil 1 to 2 minutes on each side, until tender enough to break apart. Break salmon into cubes with a spatula or fork. Mix in the tomatoes, garlic, and lemon juice. Continue cooking until salmon is easily flaked with a fork.
3.Mix the parsley, Parmesan cheese, butter, and hot pepper sauce into the skillet, and continue cooking 1 to 2 minutes, until well mixed. Serve over the cooked rice.

An average cook, an enthusiasm for experimenting and trying new things, is the reason for this blog. That and I found myself in the “empty nest” syndrome and needed an outlet. So I picked up the camera that was collecting dust, got out the pile of recipes, contacted friends and family for their favorites and starting cooking again. What could be better than a glass of wine, a hot stove, and creativity? Come along for the ride. I will be blogging about food, family, and anything else that inspires me.
