I gave this 5 stars bc the salmon came out moist and the squash was perfectly crisp. When I cook salmon it often comes out dry from me over cooking it and my squash tends to get mushy. The cooking times for this recipe were spot on and the whole dish was flavorful. Even my 10 month old enjoyed eating from mommy's dish!
