This salmon is better than I've ever had at a restaurant. Sweet, savory and crunchy my taste buds couldn't get enough of this! There are so many layers of flavor in this dish. I can't wait to serve this to my seafood loving friends... I'm sure they will love this as much as I did. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
