Salmon, Wild Rice and Watercress Stew

As you know by now Salmon is one of my favourite fish dishes! I love the flakey pink flesh that is full of Omega 3! Sometimes I get a bit bored of having it on my plate with veg so here is a new take on a fish stew! Fish stew to me sounds disgusting however this sounds mouth watering...

RECIPE: Salmon stew combined of wild rice and fresh watercress in a mouth watering flavourful broth, serve with wholemeal crusty bread!

You will need:

1 onion, finely chopped
1 leek, finely sliced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
300 g celeriac, cut into 1cm cubes
100 g wildrice
750 ml fish stock, hot
100 g watercress, chopped
600 g salmon fillets cut into large pieces
2 lemons

To Make...

1. Add the onion and leek to pan and sauté for 3-4 minutes

2. Stir in the garlic, celeriac and rice then pour over the stock

3. Boil rapidly for 15 minutes

4. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, adding extra water if necessary

5. Stir in half the watercress

6. Place the salmon on the rice

7. Season and squeeze over the juice of 1 lemon

8. Cover and cook gently for 7 minutes until the salmon is cooked

9. Flake the salmon into the rice and serve with the remaining watercress and wedges of lemon

I cannot tell you how yummy this is it is a great one to have if you have a lot of people round perhaps the family and makes a refreshing change in having salmon just cooked on a plate or in Stir-Frys!
