We really liked this. I subbed a red pepper for the green, and also added a sliced zucchini. It looked good and tasted great! I liked the shrimp best and I think it might have been even better as leftovers the next day! Thanks for sharing.
Awesome! Just the color alone is fantastic; since it took more bell pepper than called for, we cut in a red one and that made it even more flamboyant. We had to use the broiler as our grill isn't out for the season yet, but they came out perfect and delicious. We don't do seafood at home all that often but this was fun and not difficult and the flavor was amazing. Made for Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbook game.
We have been using this recipe since last year and love it! The salmon in this recipe melts in your mouth somehow. This will continue being a top recipe in our household...thanks for sharing!
