Green – the color of money, Kermit the Frog, shamrocks, and this delicious, divine sauce, perfectly paired with a fabulous flakey fillet of salmon. Green is also the color of zucchini, cooked in this recipe with white wine and paprika, which adds a smoky tinge to the squash. Most of all, green is the color of envy, as anyone who sees you devouring such a beautiful dinner will feel.
