Salmon is one of the easiest type of fish to find here in China. It's available at most online supermarkets as well as big chains like Carrefour and guess what? You are not going to break the bank!

I bought mine on freshfresh.com, a new online seller for fresh fish, fruit, vegetables and meats. So far I love it!

This recipe is great for winter or summer time, it's quick and healthy and very colorful! Here is how to make it.
