Sesame Salmon with Wild Rice and Creamy Zucchini: Easy to make and well-balanced 25 minutes Asian-style recipe. Low carb, gluten-free, healthy.
One shocking fact about me: I haven’t eaten rice until I was in my early twenties. Before the turning point I tried sushi and for some more years to go, the only thing I ate that contained rice was sushi. And I must tell you, I missed so much! Now I use rice in my cooking quite often. Maybe I even overuse it sometimes. In the recipe I will be sharing with you today, rice is a side dish. I used a mixture of brown and wild rice because I think it fetches out the taste of salmon and zucchini in a nice new way. You still can use white rice though if you want, but if you haven’t try wild rice yet, you definitely should. Wild rice is low-carb, rich in proteins, contains much more antioxidants than white rice and lowers cholesterol levels. As for salmon, the sesame coating really rules. You can go ahead and use black sesame as well. I’ve been unsuccessfully hunting for it in German grocery stores. In the end, I found it at the Spice Market in Istanbul and purchased a lot! So next time I would use it together with white sesame for the coating. Zucchini completes this meal and makes it very well balanced and healthy. The combination of salmon, wild rice and zucchini makes the meal very light and low-caloric, which means that you can have a small extra portion 🙂
