Preparation : Now that we have our ingredients ready, let’s get on with making The Olive Garden Salmon Recipe: Before we start, there are two things that we need to do. Firstly, marinate the Salmon and put a pot of water on the stove to boil our Rice and freeze our Herb Butter.
Garlic Butter Herb;
In a bowl, add butter, garlic, and parsley. Mix all these to make a good paste. Place it on parchment paper, fold it, seal both ends, and put it in the freezer to chill.
In a bowl, place your salmon and add in salt, pepper, and Italian seasonings. Rub these on both sides of the salmon and let it sit and marinate for about 15-20 minutes.
Making the Herb-Grilled Salmon;
Get a skillet and add oil to it. You may use cooking spray if you are trying to avoid extra calories.
Once hot, add in your marinated salmon. Place it skin-side down and brush it with some oil.
Cook the salmon well on both sides by flipping it regularly until you get the desired cook.
Once it's done, cover it so that it stays warm while you cook your Rice.
Garlic Rice and Veggies;
Take some asparagus and blach it in hot water. Once done, take a pan and add a dash of oil and place your asparagus in it. Sprinkle some Salt and pepper on it and saute it for a minute. Once done, keep it aside.
In another pan, add butter and let it melt. Once melted, add in the boiled rice and stir. Cook it on medium heat to avoid the browning of rice.
Now add in the chopped Garlic and mix. Cook for about 5 minutes to get the Rice fully tender and aromatic.
Get your Herb Butter out of the freezer and cut a ½ cm ring out of it.
Get a platter and on one side add your rice and asparagus and on the other Place the hot salmon and on top of it, keep the herb butter.
Serve it with lemon wedges and top the salmon with some leftover sauce in the pan to help melt the butter faster.
