4-yr-old loved this salmon, especially the crust! Salad was so-so. I see there are many variations for sides with this salmon, so I will perhaps try another option next time.

Baked the mushrooms a little longer than suggested to get more liquid out of them.. They ended up making the crust soggy if not.

Paleo version was delicious! I added goat cheese to the salad as other reviewers suggested and subbed walnuts for the pecans. I've made it 3 times in the last few weeks.
