Salmon in Rice Paper

a little help, please?

have a dry rub working on some fresh salmon and will cut that into squares to fold into rice paper, but am not sure if i should lightly steam the fish, then wrap and then pan sear, or will pan-searing be enough?

i see both techniques, so am wondering what would be better? they will be small bite-size pieces and will cook quickly.

  1. Eh, your salmon is probably all gone by now.
    Hope you enjoyed it!

    I would just pan-sear since they are only small bite-size pieces, but then I like my salmon not-cooked-right-through.

    Did it work out ok for you? It's such a lovely way to do salmon :)

      i put a little cilantro leaf on the rice paper, then placed the salmon. than dabbed a blob of preserved lemon mayo that i had made and wrapped them up. pan-seared for about 1 minute on each side. yes. delish.

      will definitely be making versions of this again.

        It sounds wonderful! I must remember the lemon mayo idea.

        I can recommend this recipe as well (excuse me if it's deja vu, I recently linked to it on another thread about macadamia nuts)

        The indonesian pesto for this recipe is fabulous.
