    This has become my go-to salmon recipe! I can easily make it while I prepare some frozen veggies and rice in the microwave - a full meal in less than fifteen minutes. - 1/1/17

    So easy and good for you. I just moved and had unpacked one skillet and a knife/cutting board, and bought a new microwave. What could I cook? This was perfect, and I was so proud of myself for having a delicious and beautiful meal my first night in the new house instead of delivery pizza! - 10/17/17
