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.0 Helpful
My family enjoyed it very much.0 Helpful
Baked the mushrooms a little longer than suggested to get more liquid out of them.. They ended up making the crust soggy if not.0 Helpful
Good! Next time I'll make some rice or couscous to go with it.0 Helpful
We enjoyed the fish a lot. The salad was ok.0 Helpful
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.0 Helpful
