I used to weight-train to keep myself in shape for my work as a volunteer firefighter, and I often prepared this dish. It’s loaded with fiber, protein and antioxidants. Now that I’m a stay-at-home mom, I make it to give me energy to chase the little ones. —Dawn Bryant, Thedford, Nebraska

"I gave this 4 stars because I added spices, which I felt made it better. I also deviated on the salmon because I was afraid it would dry out. My husband devoured it, and it was a nice change of flavors."
