Curried Salmon & Rice

Recipe by Sara 76

My Mum found a recipe for this dish when I was a kid, and it became my favourite meal! There is another version of this on zaar, but when i made it, the measurements didn't quite work out, so here is the way I cook it...

A very tasty recipe which I scaled back for four. I melted the first lot of butter and used two eggs to make the crust. I used cumin instead of curry powder as we don't really like curry powder. I'd never used cumin with salmon but it was a blend which worked really well - a Zaar Kitchen Dictionary recommendation. I did use low-fat milk but I used regular cheese as I cannot abide reduced-fat cheese which I find so flavourless I'd rather omit it. End result: a very enjoyable dish which - since we eat a lot of salmon and enjoy rice dishes - I'll be adding to my regular rotation. Thank you for sharing this family recipe, Sara. Made for PRMR.
