Pink salmon and rice I find is so delicious when you cook it with tomatoes, that whenever I feel for this I make sure I have some tomatoes in the fridge just for this dish of pink salmon and rice. I consider this recipe a “fast cook”, for those days when you don’t feel like cooking or you’re too busy to cook a more complex dish. And believe you me, I do have those days!
A Simple Pink Salmon and Rice
Although this is a “fast cook”, one point to note is that pink salmon is not cheap here in Trinidad and Tobago. I would probably buy saltfish, or smoked herring more often before I buy a can of pink Salmon, but sometimes you feel for something different from the ordinary.
Cooking pink salmon and rice is relatively simple. Of course, I always add a bit of a Trini signature to this dish by adding Golden Ray Margarine. Golden ray margarine is a type of margarine we have available here in Trinidad and Tobago that has roucou in it. So, if you cannot get it, butter may have to suffice.
So I hope you enjoy this fast and simple trini meal. Here’s Pink Salmon and Rice Trinistyle!
