Giant Wild Rice Medley Recipe
PUBLISHED: 15:16 17 October 2014 | UPDATED: 15:16 17 October 2014
The nuttiness and texture from the Giant Wild Rice needs something with similar properties from the spice world - and that something has to be mustard seeds.
Texturally they are a match and more importantly in terms of flavour they are ideal - their rounded almost bitter flavour ideal with the rice but a gorgeous contrast to the smooth mellowness of the lentils.
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 45 mins
125g Tilda Giant Wild Rice
4 sea bass fillets
100g split yellow peas
6 tablespoons olive oil
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
Handful of chopped parsley
2 teaspoons wholegrain mustard (or Dijon)
1 clove crush garlic
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
In a pan of boiling water add the yellow split peas and the Tilda Giant Wild Rice and cook at a simmer for 40 mins then drain the excess water off.
In separate bowl add olive oil and the lemon zest and juice, crushed garlic, salt and pepper and whisk to make a dressing then add the rice and lentils. Add the parsley and mix well.
Pan fry the sea bass for approx. 10 minutes, season to taste.
