Black Bean-Salmon Stir-Fry

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

This is the first recipe that I've made from Eating Well Magazine that has turned out a little...meh. That's a really Lenny description, but I may or may not make it again. There was nothing wrong with it, but nothing exciting either.

The only changes I made were to add more salmon, since the piece I had was about 1.5 lbs instead of 1 lb., and to add a stalk of broccolli, so I wouldn't have to make a veg on the side. I just cooked it a bit first so it would all finish at the same time.

I'm not a huge fan of bean sprouts, but I actually did like them in this recipe, but I left them crunchier than the description.

Maybe I didn't make this recipe at all.. I altered it a bit. Ah well, take a look and see if it sounds like something you might like.
