It's Gen here, and today I am turning over the blog to Mom so she can speak of things not directly pug related. She has decided to participate in a menu planning party. Please bear with her......
Poached Salmon with Rice
An easy meal that's both healthy and yummy! Hoisin sauce is a little sweet, so most kids will enjoy it. Poaching is much less complicated than it sounds, and is less smelly than pan frying.
Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 10 mins
4-6 oz salmon fillet per person
Hoisin sauce: 1 tbs per filet
Scallion: about 1 stalk per fillet
Your choice of plain or flavored rice
Chop scallions into 1/2 slices, reserve green tops for decorative garnish.
Slice lemon into thin slices, set aside
Wash salmon filets in cool water.
Arrange salmon filets in a single layer top of a double boiler, or use a veggie steamer in a sauce pan*.
Make sure to have a few inches of water below the fish, but do not submerge filets.
Top each filet with @ 1 tbs. Hoisin sauce and sprinke with scallion slices.
Cover and allow fish to steam for @ 10 mins/inch of thickness, when fish appears opaque, it is cooked.
Place the cooked salmon on a bed of rice with a slice of lemon and a sprig of scallion. Yum.
