  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice

  • 2 ½ tablespoons garlic oil

  • 2 (6 ounce) fillets salmon

  • ½ teaspoon dried dill weed

  • ¼ teaspoon paprika, or to taste

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 fresh tomatoes, diced

  • 1 ½ teaspoons minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 4 dashes hot pepper sauce


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring water and rice to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 20 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat garlic oil in a skillet over medium heat. Season salmon with dill, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook salmon in hot oil for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, until tender enough to break apart. Break salmon into cubes with a spatula or fork. Mix in tomatoes, garlic, and lemon juice. Continue cooking until salmon is easily flaked with a fork.

  3. Mix Parmesan cheese, parsley, butter, and hot pepper sauce into the skillet; continue cooking for 1 to 2 minutes, until well mixed. Serve over cooked rice.
