"Great salad, especially washed down with a Sauvignon Blanc. I actually used grated spinach leaves instead of parsley and it worked! Despite being from the UK, I have also visited a pub in Mount Pleasant SC, is it Sticky Fingers your son orders the salmon sandwich in??"

"I grill salmonthis way using lemon pepper, salt, a tiny bit of onion power and fresh minced garlic. We like it cooked rare so it melts in your mouth! I'll try the ginger next time as well. We usually habe boiled or mashed potatoes and salad...I put spring onions & capsicum in the salad as well."

"My family loves salmon dishes, but will not make this when my third son is home, as he is deathly allergic to seafood. This recipe is awesome though, and one we'll make many more times, just not when he's here."

"This is a wonderful concept. I added some capsicum (red/orange pepper) to the salad and made the spice mix up with what I had on hand. My father, who's birthday lunch this was prepared for, said it was better than a restaurant!"
