One evening when my husband and I went out to dinner, he ordered a salmon dish that sounded interesting. It was wonderful. When I tried duplicating it at home, he said mine was as good as, if not better than, the original. That made my day!

"So delicious. Don't cook it in a cast iron pan, though, I burned the nuts."

MY REVIEW

"A really great use of macademia nuts. The salmon was delicious. However, because of the super-high calories in this meal, it isn't one I'll make too frequently."

MY REVIEW

"I think I overcooked the fish. I'll probably give this one another try, but the rest of my family was real thrilled with the it."
