Got to say it tastes alot better than it sounds, honestly give it a go, you'll definitely be suprised. I made sweet and sour red onions to top off the salmon when it came out of the oven (recipe on this site)....delicious!

we found this a bit boring! sorry to disagree with others. Certainly quick and easy, but don't think I'll be making it again.
