  1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a pot. Season with 1 tablespoon lemon pepper and 1/2 tablespoon dill weed. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place salmon in the skillet, and cook 20 minutes, turning once, until lightly browned and easily flaked with a fork. Set aside.
  3. Season the tomato slices with remaining lemon pepper and dill. Place the eggs and flour in 2 separate dishes. Dip each tomato slice in the egg to coat, then press in the flour, coating both sides.
  4. Heat remaining oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Place tomato slices in the skillet, and cook 5 minutes on each side, until lightly browned. Serve salmon over the cooked rice, and top with fried tomatoes.

Great concept. My husband really loved it. It needed salt, and you could probably get creative with the spicing, but the combination of fresh tomato, rice and salmon really works as far as flavor/texture.

I liked the fried tomatoes, but the salmon was too plain. I prefer a sauce to go along with it. I followed some other users advise and added salt and pepper to the salmon while cooking, if I hadn't it would have been waaay too plain.

This was very good. It really does need salt though, luckily I read the reviews before I made it and salted the dish as I cooked. I also made a butter sauce too for the rice, it was really good.

I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious this combination was together. We decided to give it a try because we like salmon, rice, and fried green tomatoes even though this one uses red. The only thing I did different was use more Dill and Lemon Pepper seasoning and the final dish needed quite a bit of salt. The next time I prepare it and I know I will I'm going to add a lemon butter sauce to go over the it.

I needed something to do with the can of salmon I had in the cupboard and stumbled on this recipe. I used the canned salmon in place of fresh (in a pinch it worked!) I slowly removed the salmon from the can with a knife so it came out in three solid pieces. I removed all the skin off the salmon and placed it in the pan. Then proceeded to cook according to the recipe. I did not fry up the tomatoes, I just threw them in fresh. I followed the advice of the other reviewers and made a nice lemon butter sauce to pour over the top. It was unbelievably good! I gave this a 5 star rating because you can use fresh, canned and probably frozen salmon here as well as canned whole tomatoes in a pinch and it would still taste great!

Tasty dish, the tomatoes were an idea I had never thought of and they were great on top of the fish.

This recipe was great!! Easy to make, and my fussy husband really liked it; he did add quite a bit of salt though. But he keeps asking when we're going to have it again before he finishes the meal! It's a winner in my book!

This was delicious. I only had fresh diced tomatoes, so I didn't even fry them up, I just put them on top of the salmon and it was great. It did need the salt, so I added a little to the rice and then some to the salmon as it was frying. Very easy recipe, especially with a rice cooker!
