I actually can't take the credit for this recipe - one of my very good American friend's has generously allowed me to share it here. The combination of Salmon, Tomato, Mayonnaise & Coriander seemed a little unusal to me when I'd first heard about it. But after trying it, this has now become a dish that I cook fairly regularly - it's a little on the rich side, but well worth the taste experience. Serves 4.

Ingredients

  • 4 Thick Salmon Fillets (skin removed)

  • 1 bag of pre-washed Baby Spinach

  • Parmesan Cheese Shaved

  • 1 x 400g can of Diced Tomatoes

  • 2 tablesppons Lime Juice

  • 2 tablespoons Chopped Coriander

  • 1 tablespoon Butter

  • .5 cup of Light Mayonnaise

  • 1 cup Long Grain Rice

  • .5 cup of Wild Rice

Method

  • 1.

    Season the Salmon with salt & pepper.

  • 2.

    Boil water in a medium pot for the rice.

  • 3.

    Add both types of Rice once water has started boiling. Refer to packet intructions for cooking times, but I usually allow 7-10 minutes.

  • 4.

    Preheat a large saute/frying pan on a medium heat for 2-3 minutes.

  • 5.

    Combine the can of Tomatoes, Lime Juice, Coriander & Mayonnaise in a medium bowl & mix.

  • 6.

    Coat both sides of each Salmon Fillet with the tomato mixture & place into Saute Pan.

  • 7.

    Add the remaining tomato mixture to the pan & cook for 3-5 minutes on each side - depending how thick your fillets are.

  • 8.

    Wash Spinach & place in a Microwave safe bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of Butter to the Spinach. Cover & Microwave on Medium for 3-4 minutes.

  • 9.

    Once rice is cooked, remove from stove & strain out water. Mix the Rice with the now cooked & buttered Spinach & sprinkle with the Shaved Parmesan Cheese. Place a bed of this Rice/Spinach mixture onto serving plates.

  • 10.

    Top the Rice/Spinach mixture with the Salmon Fillets & spoon over the Tomato mixture.

  • 11.

    Garnish with Coriander Leaves & a few more curls of Shaved Parmesan.

Yum Wendy! These are great flavours! I'm going to try this on the weekend because my mouth is already watering. I love salmon as a Saturday night treat if I find myself at home infront of the telly....(I actually prefer doing that to going out these days - but don't tell anyone)
