“This is a very unique recipe. The salmon in this recipe gets steamed by the water in the rice. I was leery that this would never work, but it did, and everyone wanted it again!” - by SSNAGE

- In a medium bowl, toss salmon fillets in pesto to coat.
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter, and saute shallots until tender. Stir in rice, fish stock, and wine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 15 minutes.
- Without stirring rice, place salmon in the saucepan. Cover, and continue cooking 25 to 30 minutes, until rice is tender and salmon is easily flaked with a fork.
