MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 1, 2014

"The salmon was okay, and the "pesto sauce" was okay, but they were not good together. The sauce was way too rich. It reminded me of a spinach dip - it would be good a bit thinner with tortilla chips. The salmon would be better served with something lighter tasting - maybe a simple lemon butter sauce. Would not recommend or try again."
