I have been cooking a lot of salmon recently, guess you have been noticing it too. Salmon is rich in omega 3 fatty acid and thus a brain booster. Supposed to be good for your brain. So, I came out with this recipe with what I had in my refrigerator at that time. The soup of this dish was really fragrant with the smell of DOM, so good drizzle with rice. It made a good one dish meal too!
