I like this recipe because it’s simple, it looks appetizing on the plate, it tastes good, and because it’s salmon…
There’s a kick to the blend of ingredients in the paste, not too hot, with a touch of sweetness too. It’s easy to whip up and good for any night of the week.
This is a delicacy you don’t have to feel guilty about!
