    I think I have salmon way too often – I usually have it with ginger and spring onions ’cause it seems like there’s no better way to eat it but will definitely consider trying this next time! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I was the same way as well about a year ago when I would eat salmon at least once a week, then I got so tired and avoided salmon for months! Ginger and spring onions sound delicious..I should try that next time!
