Instructions Checklist

This was excellent!! I only substituted fresh salmon that i baked as my husband is on a very restricted sodium diet. I followed the rest to a T. He loved it and can be a very picky eater. Has been thanking me for a fantastic dinner for the last hour. I will make this again. Was nice not to turn on the stove or oven on a hot Arizona day!! This recipe deserves 10 stars!! Read More
