  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 cups steamed rice
  • 1 cup dice onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 shallot, chopped
  • 1/2 TBSP butter
  • 2 tsp sea salt + extra for salmon
  • 1 TBSP fish sauce
  • Ground black pepper
  • Olive oil

Directions:

  1. Rub the salmon with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Let it rest for a while and cook in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat until lightly brown on each side. Let it cool, then scrap the salmon in a bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, combine fish sauce and sea salt in a small bowl.
  3. Add butter to a medium high heat pan, then add garlic, onion, and shallot. Cook for about 3-4 minutes until cooked and fragrant.
  4. Add the salmon back to the pan, then add parsley, cilantro.
  5. Add the steamed rice and the fish sauce over. Mix well and serve.
  6. Optional: Squeeze lime over rice (about 1 tsp).

Notes: The most important tip is to use rice that has been previously cooked (2 or 3-day old rice) to help keep the dish from turning mushy.
