Wonderful recipe. I couldn't see getting three pans dirty and heating up the oven so prepared as follows: Seared the salmon in large skillet for a couple of minutes, set aside, stir fried veggies in same skillet then place on service plate, then did a quick boil in the same skillet of the marinade. Topped salmon on veggies and poured sauce over all. Really recommend this dish. I did add some Thai hot chile peppers for some zip. For ZWT 6.
