Buena Vista Pool Hall, Arboretum, and Wild Animal Preserve Recipe 2 – Autumn 2019 Beer-Poached Wild Salmon and Wild Rice

Cooking a seemingly exotic meal doesn’t have to be difficult. Here’s a simple recipe for wild salmon.

  1.  Find a reasonably large non-stick pan (mine is 14” diameter).
  2. Empty a pint of your favorite beer into the pan.
  3. Add a half-pound to a pound of wild salmon to the beer.
  4. Add a half cup of wild rice mixed with a half cup of brown rice around the edges of the salmon so the beer covers the salmon in its entirety.
  5. Simmer salmon and rice on range-top in beer until rice is cooked and salmon is tender.
  6. Separate salmon from rice. Peel remaining scales from salmon.
  7. Serve salmon with topping of sage or basil pesto with rice on the side.
