Made it on a Friday night (always a 'special dinner night' for us) and it was delicious. And with so little washing up to do the weekend started early! Perfect.

I made this for a dinner party when I had very limited time to prepare - excellent! Everyone loved it, thought it was very tasty. And as a bonus, very little washing up!

Made this last night, my salmon was a bit chunkier than suggested and so we had to pan fry for a minute or 2, we also added mushrooms and sweetcorn to the final dish and left out the cherry toms. Added a white sauce too. Sooo yummy, will definitley be doing this again!!
