"I was super happy with how this tasted. I was a little unsure of how the strawberries and basil would go together, but was pleasantly surprised. Since the relish is basically a topping it's also a versatile recipe because those that think its strange can just eat the deliciously seasoned salmon."

"Who would have thought to put strawberries and salmon together?! It works and is quite delicious and fresh tasting. I may try broiling the salmon next time. Even my picky hubby who only likes salmon prepared a certain way liked this recipe and called it a "keeper!""
