      Perfect simplicity. Made this with Copper River salmon and served Shanghai bok choy with oyster sauce on the side.

      I've made this twice now...absolutely deeee-licious! It's simple to prepare and really brings out the lovely salmon flavor. This is a definite keeper. I served it with Roasted Pea Pods.
