If you are looking for a Gourmet Salmon Recipe, look no further!
This dish not only presents beautifully, but is delicious and easier to make than you would think.
You can also replace the filling with a variation of your favorite ingredients.
Another filling version I like to make is with Rolled Oats, Coconut Flakes, Sautéed Onion and Basil.
Serve with a side of Mango Salsa – oh my yum!
Be sure to check out the instructions (with pictures) to stuff and fold the Salmon in Rice Paper following the recipe.
- 1 Rice Paper
- 8 - 12 oz Salmon Fillet, skinned
- 2 tbs Red Bell Pepper, chopped
- 2 tbs Shallot, chopped
- 8 Spinach leaves, steamed and chopped
- Coconut Oil
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Sauté Red Bell Pepper and Shallots separately. Shallots should cook to translucent/golden brown.
- Mix Red Bell Pepper, Shallots and Spinach. Season with Salt and Pepper.
- In a deep dish, add warm-hot water and place Rice Paper in water, fully submerged (soak for 20 seconds, or until soft).
- Place filling in center of Rice Paper
- Place Salmon on top, season with salt and pepper
- Fold sides to cover Salmon, then fold top and bottom parts to enclose Salmon in envelope rice paper
- Gently Flip over
- In a skillet or frying pan, heat pan on high heat (do not place Coconut Oil in just yet)
- Test the temperature of the pan, by waving your hand over it to feel for heat, or splash a few drops of water.
- When pan is hot enough, reduce to medium heat and add Coconut Oil, spread to coat pan evenly.
- Place Salmon in Rice Paper, folded side down and allow to cook for 3 minutes, undisturbed.
- With a spatula, gently try to move the Salmon. If it doesn’t budge, allow to cook for a few minutes more.
- If you are able to move the Salmon within the pan, gently turn over and allow to cook on the top side.
- Place in the oven (or toaster oven) at 300°F, folded side down and allow to cook for 10 minutes
- Remove from oven and allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.
- Garnish with chives and enjoy!
- While cooking Salmon in Rice Paper, it is important not to disturb the Salmon, otherwise the Rice Paper may tear.
- Serve this Salmon in Rice Paper along side my Quinoa Avocado Salad and you’ve got one great tasting meal!
