Review This Recipe
Wasn't expecting much from this dish, but turned out that it tasted fantastic without much hassle. (Gives me time to study =P) Definitely should give it a try! Simple ingredients commonly found in the fridge.
This recipe is excellent, versatile and easy. It is a fast and easy weeknight dinner and with a little care in presentation is a colorful company dinner.
Even the leftovers taken for lunch the next day inspired requests for the recipe.
I've made the recipe as is or substituted Tilapia for the salmon (cook for 5 minutes) and I've used snow peas instead of zucchini. Any variation works and it's still delicious!
