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!

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..

Awful, might as well toss a cup of vineger on your scallops and salmon then toss the whole dinner in the bin because it's unedible
