This is a new recipe I've been working on for a few weeks now,my husband had a heart attack six day after is birthday, and so I've been trying to cook heart healthy, this recipe is one that we liked a lot, so you enjoy it also. I didn't have salmon this last time so I used shark, you can also use swordfish,halibut, sea bass or any other whitefish and the calorie values are similar.
