I thought this was amazing, you could really taste the avocado in the rice and the dressing on the salmon was very very good. It was a perfect balance of flavors, and not too salty like most wild rice dishes. Very natural-tasting and elegant.

I loved this. I think the proportions are a little off, though. I only used 1 lb of salmon which was perfect for the amount of tartar sauce and rice this recipe makes. Also, I followed the instructions on my wild rice bag which only called for 2 c. water. Also, I will cut the onion back to 1/2 next time.
