Pregistry’s Friday Recipe: One Pan Salmon and Rice

It’s hard to believe that a dish this easy – and with so few ingredients – can be this delicious too!

All of the ingredients are cooked and layered in a large pan, making for a dish that comes together quickly and with minimal prep and clean up!

And don’t skip brining the salmon in salt water – this ensures perfectly cooked fish every time, that is never dry!

One Pan Salmon and Rice:

  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 pound salmon fillets
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup basmati rice, rinsed
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

Place the salt in a Ziploc bag and pour 2 cups of water over to dissolve. Add the salmon, seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (or up to overnight). 

Place the eggs in a small pan with water to cover by one inch. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, cover and let sit for 7 minutes. Rinse the eggs under cold water and remove the shells. Set aside.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the rice, a large pinch of salt and stir for 2 minutes. Add 2 cups of water, bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 15 minutes. Add the salmon to the pan, cover again and cook for 10 – 12 minutes or till the salmon is done to your liking. Use a fork to break the salmon into large pieces and fluff the rice. Divide between 2 serving bowls. Halve the eggs and add to the bowls, garnishing with the parsley leaves and lemon wedges and seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.
