Posted 2017-10-20 by finyfollow

This was a delicious meal with the unusual combination of asparagus and pink salmon.

Easy to make, and double the ingredients for a family.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Serves: 2 - 3

Ingredients
For the rice
½ cup rice
15 g butter
1 x 340 jar asparagus spears
½ tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp parsley, chopped

For the topping
1 x 220 g can salmon
½ onion
½ small cucumber
½ small green capsicum
30 g butter
1/8 cup water
½ cup sour cream
1 tbsp parsley, chopped
40 g cheese, grated

Method
  • Cook the rice as per packet instructions, and drain.

  • Meanwhile drain the asparagus reserving ¼ cup of the liquid.

  • While the rice is still hot, stir in the butter, lemon juice and parsley.

  • Spread this into a well greased, deep ovenproof dish - I used a glass one.


  • Cut the asparagus, and spread it evenly over this mixture.


  • For the topping
  • Preheat the oven to about 180°/160° fan forced.

  • Chop the onion, peel the cucumber and cut it into quarters lengthwise. Remove the seeds with a spoon, and slice finely.

  • Chop the capsicum, and remove the seeds.

  • Melt the butter in a pan, add the onion and cook until it is tender.

  • Add the cucumber, capsicum and cook, stirring, for a few minutes.

  • Stir in the flour, and cook for a minute.

  • Add the water and the reserved asparagus liquid, and stir until combined.

  • Stir until the sauce boils, reduce the heat and stir in the sour cream, drained and flaked salmon, parsley, and some salt and pepper.

  • Spread this evenly over the asparagus.


  • Sprinkle with the grated cheese.

  • Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes or until the topping is golden.
