Simply Effective Salmon being an oily fish the cooking and combination of flavors are a perfect match. Cooked it this way a few times and have always had positive feedback well done neil.

On my last visit to Melbourne, I dined at rockpool ( crown Casino). My main was ""Tasman Atlantic Salmon. My mouth is still watering. I havent met a match just yet'. I am certainly going to try this at home". But i'm sure it won be the same. Thanks Neil

So easy, so very tasty and I added a spinach, rocket, tomato and avocado salad just to add some more vegetables / fruit, with colour. I can always rely on Neil Perry recipes for flavour and interest.
