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!

This was so good and so easy to make. I made a couple changes. I didn't have any shallots so I cut up some onion and added a little garlic. I used chicken stock instead of fish stock. Fish stock sounded nasty and I've never even seen it sold before. I used salmon filets that I did not cut up. I'm not sure why some people commented it didn't look very nice. We thought it looked fine and tasted even better!

This is a wonderful, easy recipe that was delicious! I added a little garlic!! And used chicken broth instead of fish stock.

This was fabulous! It was so good that I made it Friday night for a small dinner party and again on Sunday for Grandparents Day. All guests just about licked their plates! The only changes I made was using chicken stock, skinning the salmon, and cutting it into individual portions rather than cutting it into chunks. I also toasted some pine nuts and sprinkled on the finished dish.
