Fish and Rice PieHoje para Jantar
A combination of tuna and salmon are great sources of lean, healthy protein that make a great base for this dish. The rice is cooked with white wine which imparts a ton of flavor and accents the fish perfectly. Tomatoes and onions are mixed with the fish, adding a helping of vegetables and an extra bit of flavor. The whole thing gets topped with smoked sausage, which adds a nice bold flavor that finishes the dish off perfectly.
