This dish, unfortunately, was the worst one we have cooked from 'Zaar. According to my family, there was FAR too much onion and potato and carrot -- they completely overwhelmed the salmon and seasonings. If we ever try it again, we'll be reducing all those ingredients by a factor of at least three. We were all so disappointed. Could something have gone wrong with the proportions when it was being submitted?
