    Nice, healthy meal.

    Agree with some of the other comments. Next time I'll double the dressing. My fish also required about 6 mins more cooking time, but I did use snapper, not salmon.

    Submitted by MrsArcher on 25. February 2015 - 23:31.

    Yum! We are big salmon eaters and this recipe was delicious, thank you. Next time I will double the dressing recipe as I wanted more through my rice. I cooked for 20 mins total, adding veggies at 15 mins, the salmon was well cooked so I will drop it back to 16 mins next time.

    Submitted by Manly13 on 12. February 2015 - 10:39.

    Absolutely delicious and very easy. I left the fish on the bench to warm up a little from the fridge. Once cooked I left it sitting in the varoma on top of the bowl for a few minutes as we weren't quite ready to eat. 16 minutes was perfect for us as we prefer our salmon pink on the inside.

    Easy and tasty! 

    Cooked rice for about 9 mins before adding veg and salmon. I will cook salmon for about 14 mins next time and I prefer it rare. Thanks for sharing.

  • I agree. Awesome dish. I did

    Submitted by Allergymum on 26. July 2014 - 20:13.

    I agree. Awesome dish. I did have to add some time (couple of minutes) for the fish and a few minutes more for the rice after that.  I think the issue is how hot your coconut milk and water is to start with. The tip about knocking the speed up to 3 was super helpful as my liquid did boil over. I used baby corn, bok choy, peeled strips of karate and zucchini. Highly recommend this dish!

  • Thanks Vetski! Glad you

    Submitted by Miss Fauxmomix on 14. July 2014 - 05:47.

    Thanks Vetski! Glad you enjoyed it. I find that the fish cooking time depends mostly on how much of the base of the varoma is covered over. My salmon fillets were much bigger the other day so I had to pull the baking/parchment paper in from the sides part way through cooking to let more steam circulate.
