Salmon and Flavoured Rice for Saturday lunch

It was a saturday, we had salmon, so we thought it was a good idea to use it up. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Hubby enjoyed it too. He's the flavourer of fish, whilst I apply my flavourer expertise to the rice. It's nasi Kuning my way. I have no idea what goes in to the real thing but here's my version.

Nasi Kuning - My way ( portion for 2 peeps)


- Rice
- 1 tsp Ground Tumeric
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- handful of Raisins
- 2 small cloves of Garlic chopped fine
- 2 Shallots or half a big onion
- ginger - abt a cm knob, sliced up fine.
- water

Method:- Rinse the rice twice
- In a rice cooker, Put in double and a bit more of water to rice. ( the raisins soak in water. To prevent the rice from being undercooked, add just a bit more water than needed abt 1-2 TBSP should do it.)
- Fry the onions, garlic and ginger to release their flavours. (Sweat the onions)
- pour in the fried mixture into the rice
- Add raisins
- add as much tumeric as you can stand, i use about 1 tsp.
- add salt and pepper
- turn on the rice cooker and enjoy your rice in about 15 mins.

Grilled Salmon - My husband's way

Ingredients:- Salmon steaks

Grind together the following with pestle and mortar, if you don't have that, a food processor would do fine.

- 2 tsp Paprika
- a good glug of Olive Oil


- slather the fish with the ground spices, fire up the griddle till smoking ( so it won't stick)
