I've mentioned before about how I'm trying to get more fish into my diet, well I bought 2 salmon fillet portions in anticipation of trying something new. I was slightly nervous about this because I've tried salmon from friends' and families' dishes when we've been out for meals and never really liked it, but thought I'd give it one more go.... well 2 goes really because I made 2 recipes with the salmon. I didn't like it, but I'd imagine the recipes are tasty for people who do like salmon so thought I'd post them anyways.
The first recipe I got from a friend, the second is from one of my cook books (Delicious Healthy Eating, Anne Sheasby)
Soy honey salmon
1 salmon fillet
1 tbsp runny honey
1 tbsp soy sauce
1. Mix the honey and soy sauce.
2. Brush over the salmon fillet.
3. Place on a baking tray and bake at 190˚C for 15-20 minutes
1 tbsp butter
2 spring onions, chopped (white part only)
1/4 cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
100g arborio rice
1/4 cup white wine
350ml chicken stock
125g salmon fillet, broken into about 5 or 6 pieces
1. Heat the butter in a saucepan, add the spring onion and cucumber and cook for 2-3 minutes.
2. Add the rice and stir until it is covered with the oil.
3. Add the wine and stir.
4. When the wine is absorbed by the rice, add half a cup of the stock and allow to absorb. Continue doing this until all the liquid is used.
5. Stir in the salmon with the last half cup and continue to cook for 5 minutes.
6. Serve topped with a pinch or parsley.
