    Great recipe and really simple!! Reduced the amount of fresh ginger to one "finger", marinated the salmon for about 15 minutes, and soaked the cucumber in a little rice vinegar before adding as a topping. House favorite!

    Thanks Becca, so glad you all love it!

  • Maria Nalos

    With a freezer full of salmon and a handful of recipes on repeat, I’m so thankful for your inspiration. I made this for our family dinner on Monday night. So good!

    Glad to hear!
