I made this tonight for dinner using salmon filets and topping with cilantro, basil, and a little pepper. Super tasty! Next time, I might also add a little lemon juice to the sauce as well. Thanks!

This was really very good! A little bit too limey maybe but I still liked it. I served with cauliflower and zucchini.
