If I do say so myself, this recipe is damn good. It was so good, in fact, that the second it was ready, we inhaled the entire thing, putting our forks down only onto empty (nearly licked) dishes, and then realized we’d forgotten to take pictures (hence the lovely stock photo you see). But trust me, the delicately pink poached salmon looks beautiful atop white rice dotted with Parmesan and bright red cherry tomatoes.
It’s light, but has tons of flavor; it’s buttery, but doesn’t feel fatty; and it’s not that difficult to make. There are two main parts to think about: the rice, which can be all but left alone, and the salmon poaching which takes a bit more hand holding. I took my poaching cues from the one and only Eric Ripert, making them my own with white wine instead of vermouth and leaving out other steps and ingredients. But still, why not learn from the best?
Just be prepared that whomever you make this for will request it the next night, and the next night…

In Puerto Rico, these wrapped goodies are made in large quantities during the holidays, often with several family members sharing in the tasks of preparation. A food processor or blender makes the job easier. There are different versions. This one has a lot of ingredients but it is still very good. You can also stuff them with chicken instead of pork. (Time to make depends on how much help you can get!)
I got this from the TLC channel and is an Argentinean recipe. This recipe is baked in ramekins, which are individually sized baking dishes. Any other small ovenproof ceramic or glass dishes may be used instead, creating a welcome change from plain vegetables with your meals.
