Ingredients:

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup mixed fresh herbs (parsley, dill, and chives), chopped
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Raw salmon fillet

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallot and garlic, sauté for 2-3 minutes until they become fragrant and translucent.

  2. Add the jasmine rice and continue to sauté for another 2 minutes until the rice is lightly toasted.

  3. Pour in the chicken broth, bring to a simmer, and then cover the skillet with a lid. Reduce the heat to low and let it cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the rice is tender and has absorbed the liquid.

  4. While the rice is cooking, season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. In a separate large pot, bring water to a gentle simmer. Poach the salmon in the simmering water for 8-10 minutes, or until it's cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

  5. In a small bowl, mix the lemon zest, lemon juice, and the chopped herbs.

  6. Once the rice is ready, fluff it with a fork and stir in the lemon and herb mixture.

  7. To serve, place a scoop of herb-infused rice on each plate and top with a poached salmon fillet. Garnish with extra fresh herbs and lemon slices.
