This recipe turned out to be super delicious! I’m so glad my children finished with an empty plate and enjoyed the salmon but also the veggies were popular.
Remember to go green and eco-friendly with the fish you eat. Check the labels closely and ask your fish seller if needed where and how the fish was produced. There are many fish stocks in a state of serious decline and it’s not guaranteed anymore to have fish supper in the future. You can find some handy guides on how to choose your fish below.
