Last night I wanted something light and easy and very nutrient dense. So, I paired a few of my favorite foods together and voilà! Low Fodmap Greek Style Salmon. This is man-approved as my husband really liked it, so go ahead and make it for the guy you love! I’ll definitely make it for my Brother next time he visits.
