Angelica, the food in the picture looks amazing. I'm getting hungry looking at it. Nicki likes salmon, but I'm not a huge fan. I believe it would work well with chicken, so I may try this recipe with that substitution. One question: What is a tiger prawn???

Angelica said...

Well, thank you Josh! Of course you can substitute the salmon for chicken, or other types of fish (I know chicken isn't fish, I meant other types than salmon). Tiger prawns are basically giant shrimps. And to be honest, I didn't use tiger prawns. I used scampi but I forgot what they were called so had to use the only word I remembered.

Happy cooking, and be sure to tell me how it goes!
