A Light dish served over White Jasmin Rice. This is also good served cold. Left overs make a great salmon salad. You can 1/2 the liquid with no problem.

This was really wonderful. Someone who almost never cooks asked for the recipe after eating this. I also garnished this with round slices of the citrus that was used for zest and it was lovely. I will certainly make this again and again. Thank you for the terrific recipe.
