During a recent stay at a vacation house with a group of friends, we put our culinary skills together and hosted an over-the-top potluck style feast. I came home with some great leftover salmon and new inspiration from my friends’ cooking.

I really hate to waste food, so I try and incorporate my leftovers into new dishes whenever I can. I made this recipe with the salmon and a few other things I found in my fridge. The dish turned out great so I had to share it on my blog.
