Salmon and Shrimp with Garlic Rice Recipe

Sometimes I think that everyone in Alaska catches salmon. I've cooked in so many ways. This impressive dish pairs salmon and shrimp with a mild sauce.—Darlene Sullivan, Wasilla, Alaska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided

  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
