Salmon and Wild Rice

Happy Canada Day to everyone!! Even if you are not Canadian you can admire the good work that Canadians have been doing all over the world. I wanted to post a truly Canadian recipe and nothing is more west-coast Canadian than Salmon. BC is considered the Salmon capital of the world and it is my favourite fish to savour. So, enjoy this exotic recipe and spread the message of peace...

Salmon and Wild Rice

Dedication: This recipe is dedicated to all the Canadian soldiers who have lost their lives in bringing peace in Afganistan.

  1. 700 gms Salmon fillets
  2. 1/4 tsb salt
  3. pinch of pepper
  4. 3 tomatoes diced
  5. 1 tsb lemon juice
  6. 1/2 cup mayonnaise


  1. Cut salmon into 4 servings and season with salt and pepper
  2. Preheat pan on medium heat for 3 minutes
  3. Combine tomatoes, lime juice and mayonnaise in bowl
  4. Coat it with both sides of salmon and place it in pan
  5. Cook and cover for 5 minutes or untill the fish is done

Wild Rice

  2. Add rice and cook for 4 more minutes

P.S: This recipe has nothing to do with last hint, so don't scratch your head too much. I now have a new next recipe.

Hint for next recipe: A rat once went into my car and made a hellava noise.

kandykane - Yea, it sure tastes yum Thank You for the wishes.

You are welcome but I haven't watched the movie. I have heard its not a bad one though.

samuru999 - Yea, it is. Do tell me how it turned out. I love salmon too.

Thank You for the wishes. I haven't been to east coast but I have heard its just as beautiful.

bhandari's - Yea, do try it. It's yummy.

silky moon - Thanks!!

Maybe I wil dedicate you when I come across a Nepali recipe.

Yea, Bollywood has a fascination for K.

the guy next door - Thank You!! Aloo Gobhi is my favourite dish of all. It's the easiest for bachelor like me. Wild Rice is an American rice grown near lakes and it has a brownish, blackish color to it. It's considered exotic, but you can use any you have available.
