  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the rice and water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook 20 minutes.
  2. Heat the garlic oil in a skillet over medium heat. Season the salmon with salt, pepper, dill, and paprika, and cook in the hot oil 1 to 2 minutes on each side, until tender enough to break apart. Break salmon into cubes with a spatula or fork. Mix in the tomatoes, garlic, and lemon juice. Continue cooking until salmon is easily flaked with a fork.
  3. Mix the parsley, Parmesan cheese, butter, and hot pepper sauce into the skillet, and continue cooking 1 to 2 minutes, until well mixed. Serve over the cooked rice.

An excellent, fresh-tasting way to eat salmon. Since I didn't have any garlic oil on hand, I used olive oil and added a couple cloves of fresh crushed garlic. I also didn't have any fresh parsley, so I substituted 1.5 Tbsp dried. The amount of spices is perfect and I like how the tomatoes don't overwhelm the taste of the salmon. I made my husband salmon with a sweeter sauce (I'm diabetic and can't share), and he kept trying to steal bits of mine anyway! I served it over brown rice instead of white for a healthier meal, and served it with steamed asparagus and fresh green beans. Very good and it tastes wonderfully fresh.

This is a fantastic recipe! I was worried about taking a beautiful piece of fish and preparing it like this but it was wonderful. I did serve it over angel hair pasta, which was great. I feel bad about saying that I "tweaked" the recipe just a bit, but I did. It seemed that the salmon needed just a bit more sauce and so I added about 1/4 cup of dry white wine and about 1/2 cup of heavy cream. It was so delicious! Thank you for sharing the recipe.

This recipe is worth 10 stars! I made this for my family and the kids asked me to fix it again the very next day! I now serve it 2-3 times a month. I have served it for dinner parties; guests always love it and ask for the recipe. It's very easy to make. Tastes similar to a dish Red Lobster used to serve, but this is better. I subsitute olive oil since I can't find garlic oil in this area, and sometimes serve it over pasta instead of rice, which makes it extra filling.

Here's a quick update on this dish ... my husband suggested using jumbo prawns instead of salmon (although we love the salmon) ... I tried it yesterday and it's just as tasty. This is a FABULOUS dish! Below is my original review ... I made it last night and I thought my husband was going to pick up the plate to lick off the very last of the sauce! I made just a couple of easy changes ... I used brown rice rather than white, simply because it's a little healthier and I think brown has a better flavor. I used Mexican diced tomatoes since that's all I had, they were spicy and I figured that was what was being called for so what the heck? This dish is good enough for the PICKIEST of in-laws or children, a wonderful recipe for company or a romantic evening at home with your honey. Honest to goodness, this was DEEEE-LICIOUS!

This is REALLY good. would never think about adding all those spices together. The combo of all ingr. together reminded me of something canjun. One pointer... do break up the fish like the recipe says to do. I followed another reviewer and didn't and think the flavors would have mingled even better if the fish was broken up.

thank you for sharing this very easy and tasty recipe - i agree - it truly deserves a fancier name! i was a bit afraid to flake the salmon in the last part of the recipe so i just left it in cubes but will flake it a bit next time. i didn't have garlic oil but simmered a large smashed clove of garlic in some canola oil before adding the salmon. i didn't have fresh parsley so i used dried. i didn't know what kind of parmesan cheese to use so i bought the type shredded in the bag and then put a little bit of the type you sprinkle over spaghetti. i sprinkled capers over half because only one daughter and i like capers. it's yummy and deeeeelicious and i will definately make it again. next time i will try the canned tomatoes if i don't have any fresh ones.

This a wonderful new way to cook salmon! We like it over rice as well as over angel hair pasta. I omitted the [hot sauce, used a can of Italian-style diced tomatoes, and added 1 tsp. Italian Seasoning. It was delicious and reheated well, also. Thanks, we're keeping this one!
