 This is another one of my Blood Type A dinners (see top of my blog for more information), but I would eat this no matter what blood type I happen to be!

Salmon with Flavorful Sauce with Arugula & Soba Noodles

It was comforting, savory, aromatic, and interesting all at the same time, and I devoured it. I was actually sorry I had not cooked this for the rest of the family. They missed out.
