I loved the salmon, but jury's still out on the squash. My bf absolutely devoured it though giving it an instant 5-star rating. I made exactly as directed,(cooked squash in microwave, cut in half lengthwise, placed in dish and covered with plastic wrap for 10 min.) I would make this salmon again but I'm not sure about the squash.
First reaction to this was 'Hmmm', and after eating it for a bit, I thought maybe I liked it. It was pretty easy to make and definitely healthy, but I don't plan to make it again. My husband felt the same way and our 18-month-old wouldn't touch it (but who knows what that means!) I'm not sure how to change the recipe to make it yummy, though.
Made the recipe exactly as it said and served with stir fried baby bok choy.
