Instructions: Lemon Dill Rice

  1. Using a large saucepan or enamel coated skillet, sauté onion in 1 Tablespoon olive oil until slightly translucent. About 3-4 minutes.

  3. Add a pinch of Himalayan salt and dry rice. Stir well to coat the rice. Continue cooking another 2-3 minutes.

  5. Bring rice to a simmer. Place tight-fitting lid on pot or skillet and allow to simmer 15-18 minutes.
  6. Remove rice from the stove and fluff with a fork. Place lid back onto pot or skillet and allow to rest about 5-10 minutes.
  7. Remove lid and stir in lemon juice, lemon zest, fresh chopped dill, fresh chopped parsley, a nice pinch of Himalayan salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste.
  8. Transfer rice to a serving platter and place salmon fillets on top. Garnish with a little fresh lemon zest, fresh dill and fresh thyme leaves just before serving.
