It’s been a while – too long – since we last featured Don Jacobson from Roadcookin on Tachoblog so let’s put that straight right now with a healthy recipe that drivers can cook when they’re on the road.  They taste just as good cooked at home too of course!

Roadcookin LogoThis recipe is for Wild Rice’d Salmon which, according to Don, ‘is not necessarily “standard” driver fare but, this is a healthy recipe (see nutritional info) and also a sustainable fish recipe.’

Now click below for the recipe…

Wild Rice’d Salmon

½ cup wild rice (or same amount of quick rice)
¼ cup diced shallots
1 cup Kitchen Basics fish stock
6 oz salmon steak or filet (fresh is best, but can use “retort” pre-package,
just rinse to get rid of some of the sodium)
2 tsp dried dill weed
2 tb lemon juice
6 spears fresh asparagus

Mix shallots, wild rice and fish stock in disposable loaf pan.

Place salmon atop rice.

Sprinkle fish with dill.

Lay asparagus on top and sprinkle lemon juice over all.

Cook in Burton for 40 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
