Asian Salmon-and-Rice Soup
We used long-grain rice for our soup. In China and Japan, it would be made with short-grain, which is starchier and dissolves into the soup more readily. If you want to go the short-grain route, arborio is readily available.
Pairing this soup with wine may be a bit of a stretch. A lager beer is a much better choice. Best of all: small flasks of warm, tangy sake.
