Recipe Notes

Poblano peppers:  If you have never tried these slightly hot peppers this is great way to introduce them!  Remove seeds and veins to reduce the heat or sub with bell pepper.

You will need one pound of salmon for this recipes.  One half of a large fillet (like Steelhead salmon) is perfect!

Careful not to overcook!  These cook up quickly.
