    It was absolutely delicious and so easy and quick to make. I cut a lovely ripe tomato like a flower, and put the salmon on top and had it for lunch. It looked beautiful and was so good that I´m repeating the same thing for lunch today. I can't wait to have people over for dinner so I can have this as a first course.
