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. Sesame Salmon with Wild Rice and Creamy Zucchini: Easy to make and well-balanced 25 minutes Asian-style recipe.

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.

Instructions
  1. Start with boiling rice according to the instruction on your package. I boiled a triple amount of water with a pinch of salt, added rice and boiled for 20 min over low heat in a covered pot.
  2. Put a pan over a medium heat. Add a bit of olive oil.
  3. Cut your zucchini in two halves lengthwise and then finely chop it.
  4. Cook zucchini for about 5-7 minutes or until soft, then add lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper and cook for 2 more minutes. Add chives and cream and cook for 2 more minutes.
  5. Cut salmon in cubes with 3 cm (1 inch) side and put them in a bowl. Add soy sauce and sesame seeds and mix well.
  6. Cook salmon in a pan over medium heat with a bit of olive oil from all sides until the sesame is golden (about 5 minutes), stirring occasionally.
  7. Arrange rice, salmon cubes and zucchini on two plates and season to taste.
  8. Enjoy!
