  1. Just made this — yum! Thought I wouldn’t like it with the asparagus chilled, but it was great with the salmon with coconut cream sauce :-)

  2. Hi~ I’m on MFP and I have noticed that quite a few of your recipes are not included in their database, including this one. How many calories/ protein are in this dish?

    1. shenanigans – We’re in the process of making sure all of our recipes have nutritional info right now. I updated this one to include it (if you’re logged in). It has 39 calories, 2 grams of carbs, 4 grams of fat, and 1 gram of protein.

  3. Samantha- Evoo is extra virgin olive oil. It just has a lighter, more mild flavor than regular olive oil. But using regular olive oil is just fine.
