If you follow this method of cooking basmati rice it will be perfect and fluffy every time; the rinsing is very important as it removes alot of the starch.It is best to use a rice cooker, but can be cooked in a saucepan with equal success.
This is a nice way to use up corn from your freezer, I had 6 frozen ears from last years crop that I used for this dish. I used hot banana peppers, as i had then in my garden but any kind of hot pepper would do. You could also add some heavy cream at the end but i chose not to this time.Best cooked in a cast iron skillet.
My Dads fiancee gave this recipe to me when we were visiting in England recently. I cooked this the other day using wild alaskan salmon(found in Walmart,can you believe!) And it was superb,I made my own pesto as my garden is full of basil. Also I cant buy creme fraiche locally so I made my own by adding lemon juice to heavy cream until thickened.
Im posting this so I can remember exactly what i did when i made this yesterday.There are soo many chicken salad recipes out there; this is not extraordinairy, just plain darn good. It was wonderful in wheat bread sandwiches, with baby lettuce.
We love summer tomatoes and I came up with this recipe with ingredients on hand, I now make it all the time. Its best made with home grown tomatoes and real parmesan cheese ( not the kind in a container)
