If you're like me who hates the smell of salmon but loves the texture, this is the best dish for you guys. When I was pregnant my super sense of smell couldn’t stand the smell of a cooked salmon. But since its packed with nutrients I can't let one sense spoil the nutrients going to my baby. While I was sobbing about this to all, my clever little sister-in-law gave me this recipe which I have tweaked to my taste buds. Hope you all will enjoy …
