This was AWESOME! This is going to me one of my signature dishes. I added salt pepper and garlic for taste!

Not a fan. Shallot sauce was yummy, but salmon cooked in oil with pesto was way too oily. Also, scallops cooked a lot faster than salmon. Won't make again!

Delicious! A very unique combination of flavors, with the vinegar, pesto and seafood. A very easy dish to make. I served it with steamed broccoli and couscous, which I stirred some of the pesto into.

It's a very tasty dish. I added some frozen peas with the sauce and also tossed in quinoa pasta. Just to know its to be served for four is exciting..
