This was great! My husband loved it! The smoked salmon adds a nice flavor. I added some sliced fresh Brussels sprouts to the pot at the beginning - tasted good. I can't say that the pickled jalapeños were very noticeable. Will definitely make this again!

This was very yummy! Only thing I didn't use was the jalapeno. Just added a bit of extra pepper and doubled the cilantro. Used a left-over grilled salmon filet rather than smoked salmon. Great way to make that left-over stretch a bit further!
