This is another wonderful and healthy dish from Dr.Andrew Weil. No more words are needed, just try his fish.

Top Review by Phat and Sassy

I made this tonight for my husband's dinner. (I'm allergic.) He loved it and gave it the five star rating. I covered the salmon for the last 10 minutes that you let it rest, before I realized that the directions didn't say to cover it. It was fine. In fact, I can't see how it would cook through if it wasn't covered. I'm very new when it comes to cooking fish and loved how easy this was to make. Thank you, HappyHarry #2.
