Bake a healthy paella-style dish of salmon and chorizo rice.
1 onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, sliced
200g/7oz short-grain rice such as arborio rice
4 tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 tbsp parsley
600ml/20fl oz chicken stock
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
Heat a heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat and fry the chorizo for 3-4 minutes, or until crisp. Remove the chorizo from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Fry the onion and garlic in the remaining oil for 3-4 minutes, or until soft.
Place the chorizo, onion, garlic, rice, tomatoes, butter and parsley into a well-buttered casserole dish. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Pour over the chicken stock, cover with a tight-fitting lid and bake in the oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the rice is cooked.
Meanwhile, wrap each salmon fillet in smoked salmon and trim off any excess flesh. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and squeeze over with the lemon juice.
Roast the salmon pieces in the oven for 6-8 minutes, or until cooked through.
Serve the salmon on top of the chorizo rice.
This recipe was quick and I had plenty of leftovers for the next day’s lunch!
