    I used this recipe and it was delish. Trying to eat and cook healthier. The only difference was I used olive oil instead of avacado.

  2. The fish was delish. I am always looking for a healthier way to cook. The only thing I changed was the oil.

    I love salmon, I am always looking for new ways to make it , this is super easy so moist and delectable my mouth waters just thinking about it . But my absolute favorite recipe from Chef Kenneth is his blackened salmon and pasta alfredo I would have never thought to combine the two but incredible. I never knew that the skin side is the presentation side. Who knew !
