    Delish! Ended up marinating the salmon for at least 24 hours and it was very flavorful, but not too much. We'll make this one again soon!

    My husband and 2 year old love this! It's quick and flavorful. I make rice with it and dinner is done is 30 minutes.

    This was wonderful. I'm not a fan of mandarin oranges so I sliced fresh oranges instead and it was fantastic! YUM!
