Salmon on Rice

Alas, sometimes when I take photos of a meal; they don’t come out at all well. This evening was one of those times.

In any case, Salmon on Rice was for dinner.

Rice was black sticky rice which was boiled, and finished with butter. Traditionally, black sticky rice is used for making desserts; however, I’m rather fond of its sweet flavour, and the colour of it is fantastic from a presentation perspective.

Salmon was coated in pesto, and baked for the most part; with a brief grill to brown the pesto (baking turned it a tad sludgy. Grilling it, crisped it up nicely).

Imagine, if you would, a white plate with a circle of black-ish burdgandy rice; with a long, narrow, piece of salmon lying demurely across the center of the plate, skin side up.
