This dish is simple to make, but it's all about having the right ingredients. I learned to make this during a cooking class in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and have recreated it stateside several times since — with varrying results. This time, I got it right, by searching out the most authentic Thai ingredients. It's possible to substitute in brown sugar and a different kind of rice, but it just won't yield the same results. To get the most out of this delicious dessert, visit a Thai grocery store in your area to make sure you are getting the right products.

Parmesan
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…  Click here to see The New and Improved Farm-Raised Salmon story.
