“This is one of Tom's special meals that he makes when we are having company (or when I bug him enough, I LOVE salmon)... it makes a beautiful dish and it absolutely wonderful! This is from another recipe and he's adjusted the ingredients a bit to our tastes, it's easy to play around with, so feel free!”
