Love the sauce, didn't care for the prep. Next time I'll keep the seasonings essentially the same but grill the salmon and stir fry the veggies. The cooking time using a broiler obviously varies based on the thickness and coldness of your fillet. Not realizing how fast the veggies cooked, they browned a bit too much, so I had to take them out and continue cooking the fish until done. But will definitely make it again because the sauce is so yummy with the salmon.
