  1. My husband and I really enjoyed this! I loved all the fresh veggies and ate it with a side of Rice A Roni Wild Rice. Delicious! Thanks for sharing

    1. Oh, yes! Shrimp and/or chicken tastes great too! The temperature for the shrimp will be a lot less and the chicken would be about the same as the salmon, maybe a little more. It is best to use a meat thermometer for the correct temperature for eating.
