Veggies soggy.

Not enough vegetables

Fish was most even after reheating, but it was a bit fishy (trimming the extra fast under the skin would've helped.) The two sauces were delicious!
2 Stars
This is the only thing that I have disliked out of everything I have ordered so far. Both pieces of salmon were VERY fishy tasting. The veggies were okay, but I thought that the sauce was overly salty. I would not order this item again.

I feel it was very salty

Would have liked a few more veg

I think the fish was bad, it gave me terrible cramps and nausea.
2 Stars
The flavor of the vegetables was great and the sauces were tasty, but not enough to cover up the fact that the fish tasted far from fresh.

The salmon was horrible. Smelled fishy
5 Stars
Great
1 Stars
This tasted awful.
3 Stars
flavor is very good, but salmon came a little overcooked. once i had to heat it up, it cooked even more and then became well done. would prefer to have it delivered seared, like the name of the dish.
5 Stars
Really good. One of the better Muchery items my husband has tried. good sauce. salmon well cooked. Delicious.
2 Stars
Ridiculously tiny portion. A very small slice of salmon served on top of a half portion of veggies. Sauces were good tasty but hard to tell how to use them.
2 Stars
Generous portion of salmon but not all that tasty,
5 Stars
yum

Felt like I was having a type of sushi with spicy sauce! Vegetables cooked well..wish there was a little more. Overall great dish!
5 Stars
Fantastic!- keep this on the menu!
3 Stars
Nice large piece of salmon. Kind of plain though. Vegetables were nicely cooked.
2 Stars
Salmon looked beautiful but was very overcooked and dry. Broccolini was bitter and over cooked. Kimchi aioli was a tasty. Over all I was very disappointed. Plus the dinner was late and I wasn't notified until after the last delivery time.
4 Stars
I'd like to see the farmed salmon replaced with wild or ocean-farmed (Skuna Bay).
4 Stars
menu staple
3 Stars
A lot more spicy than I expected. As I'm a lightweight when it comes to spiciness I wouldn't order again.
3 Stars
Portion size is very small for the price

Very good! And healthy
3 Stars
Salmon is great but their should be waaaaaaay more veggies.
2 Stars
The salmon was flavorful, but unfortunately salmon was slightly overcooked and dry. The veggies were undercooked and not good, threw them out. Delivery took longer than stated as well. Character limits prevent me from adding other positive.
5 Stars
Delicious!

Great!

4 Stars
Taste and texture of the salmon was great. Definitely would order again.

A perfect dish! Great salmon coated with sesame seeds, tasty veggies, and great kimchi aioli. Grain and Gluten free, so you feel great after eating. One of our favorites.
5 Stars
Delicious!

Salmon wasn't the best quality
4 Stars
This is really good. The salmon was a decent portion and the veg was crispy and fresh. Although the salmon was slightly dry - the sauce helped. Overall, a great meal!
5 Stars
This is the type of dish I am looking for everyday from Munchery. The flavors were fresh and delicious and the fish was perfectly cooked. The carb count was amazing! More of these amazing low carb dishes, PLEASE!
5 Stars
Delicious!!! Great service too
3 Stars
Great salmon. Veggies were alright at best.
4 Stars
Delicious salmon, delicious vegetables, delicious sauce. Seeds were the downfall.
5 Stars
Very good and filling dish. The salmon was perfect.
5 Stars
DELISH!
5 Stars
Another excellent salmon from Chef Levine - the crust makes it fun to eat, and the tamari makes it all especially savory. My colleagues were jealous when I had this for lunch at work!
4 Stars
Salmon was great. But FYI- no more broccolini for us ever again on any order in the future. Can we substitute vegetables on orders?
5 Stars
Delicious!!!!
5 Stars
This was cooked rare the way I like, and the flavors were subtle and delicious. The sauces were also nice.
4 Stars
Love the crust on the salmon. I prefer it a little less cooked through, though.
4 Stars
The salmon was superb but the veggies were soggy & mushy. Also the sauce had spilled during transit making it quite a mess. It's too bad because this way of preparing salmon is delicious.
4 Stars
Great low carb option. Yummy salmon. Veggies were a little gooey I think from the mushrooms and maybe too much sauce
4 Stars
The stirfry was delicious. The salmon was well cooked but a little too much sesame for my taste
5 Stars
ALL OF THIS ALL OF THE TIME!
5 Stars
Didn't use the sauces but everything else was spot on. Great veggie combo and the salmon was cooked perfectly.
5 Stars
OMG - probably the best thing I've had from Munchery, and that's saying something. Everything was absolutely DELICIOUS and so well prepared. Only critique is that the vegetable marinade leaked out of the container and made a bit of a mess.
3 Stars
Felt the fish tasted way too fishy for me. Probably wouldn't purchase again.
5 Stars
Excellent! Salmon was cooked perfect and very tasty.
5 Stars
Both sauces were to die for- finger licking!!!! Yummy.
1 Stars
This was unbelievably fishy tasting. Not acceptable at all. I do hope future dishes are as good as other things I've enjoyed from Munchery. This salmon must not have been fresh.
2 Stars
Fish did not seem fresh
5 Stars
I couldn't eat this fast enough. The sauces were amazing and it made me want to lick my plate.
2 Stars
Way undercooked today :(
5 Stars
Perfectly cooked, even after reheating. Tasty tamari vinaigrette, my husband saved the leftover to put on rice because it was so good. Will definitely order again.
5 Stars
This meal was very good! I paired it with rice and got two meals as the portion size was big. The sauces were so very good! Salmon is quite pinkish, microwaving for a couple of minutes rectified the manner.
4 Stars
Nice tamarind vin
5 Stars
I re-heated this in the oven, and it was very tasty. Would get again.
2 Stars
This was really fishy :-/
5 Stars
Really delicious! My favorite meal so far.
1 Stars
Raw upon arrival.
5 Stars
Excellent! Loved the sesame crust on the salmon, the aioli gave a little spicy kick and was perfect with it, and the vegie stir-fry was delicious! Just wish there was more salmon and aioli. Yum!!!
5 Stars
This salmon was awesome.The fish was very fresh and the vegetables were tasty. Can't wait to order again.
5 Stars
Surprisingly tasty. Nice looking fish, excellent crusting.
5 Stars
This salmon was fabulous. I followed the cooking instructions for the oven and it was perfectly done and flavors added by the tamari vinaigrette were amazing. The vegetables were done perfectly too. I would definitely order again. Aioli good too.
5 Stars
Excellent, as always. Even the vegies are good. Only complaint, I wish there was more of the aioli and a little more spice/kick in the kimchi.
4 Stars
Love the sesame crust and the salmon is done perfectly! Great dish!
4 Stars
I love the sesame crust on the salmon and the salmon was cooked perfectly. It was very moist. The flavors were delicious, but it was a little on the salty side for me.
1 Stars
Something wasn't right about this dish. Didn't like it at all. none of the ingredients seemed to match and complement each other. No repeat for me. One star because I can't rate half star.
5 Stars
Very tasty! The addition of the sauces really highlighted the sesame crust of the fish, and the variety of side vegetables really added to this dish. We really enjoyed this one.
5 Stars
Excellent. Great veggies (and a decent amount-I often feel they are a bit skimpy), and the crust on the salmon was terrific, and the sauce very good. Will order again!
5 Stars
I have loved all the salmon dishes so far. The veggies were great too. The sauces add so much more flavor too.
5 Stars
Absolute favorite. So good... the salmon is perfectly prepared and love the sesame seeds. The vegetables are incredibly tender and the sauces are to die for! Will order this every time it's offered!
5 Stars
This dish was amazing! There was so much flavor and the salmon was cooked perfectly. The two sauces complemented each other well. I would definitely order this again in the future!
4 Stars
The fish was cooked well and the vegetables and both sauces were delicious. Only thing is the salmon was a little fishy.
5 Stars
I get this every time it is on the menu. I don't know how Chef Levine gets the sesame seeds to stick to the salmon, but it makes the dish totally delicious! I would love more veggies, but only because they taste fresh and great.
5 Stars
This is the best Munchery meal I've ever ordered! The salmon was moist and flavorful, and paired well with the aioli. The stir fried vegetables were delicious and plentiful (which I appreciated!) and the tamari vinaigrette complemented them well.
2 Stars
The veges and sauces were delicious. The vegetables were both sweet and savory. The aioli, creamy. But the fish itself didn't taste fresh. I'm used to getting fresh filets from Santa Monica Seafood and the fish tasted like it came from Safeway. :(
5 Stars
I loved this salmon dish. Since then I've ordered two others by different chefs and was really disappointed.
5 Stars
Chef Levine is a favorite and this dish was superb.
5 Stars
Please run this dish more! Like, DAILY!
5 Stars
The crust on fish is often gratuitous, but this was flavorful and crunchy. The salmon was perfectly cooked. Lots of good veges. The kimchi aioli was good, too.
5 Stars
Huge piece of salmon this time. Wished there was more aioli. Love it all, including the vegies!
5 Stars
The salmon was amazing! Even after reheating, it was still moist. So delicious - I will definitely order this again.
3 Stars
This looked and smelled really good. But the salmon was so fishy tasting that it ruined it for me. I would definitely try this again maybe I just got a bad piece of fish.. The vegies were great!
4 Stars
Delicious! Salmon was perfectly done and extremely moist. The kimchi aioli really made this a great dish. Lots of veg too -- overall, a great portion size.
5 Stars
My wife and I both agreed that we would order this again. It was distinctly different and well combined which made it an unusual offering and provided inviting flavors. Nice creation!
4 Stars
Good flavor. Nice size helping. Will be ordering this again.
3 Stars
3.5 -- the salmon was delicious & a good sized piece. Veggies were ok: lots of bok choy:, less of the other veggies. Came with tamari vin & aioli -- I put some tamari on the veggies -- made them way too salty. That's what ruined the dish: Less salt!
4 Stars
The veggies in this dish are wonderful - fresh and perfectly cooked. The salmon is also good (didn't care for the kimchi but you can leave it off), but I'll order it again based on the veggies alone!
2 Stars
salmon was fine, i give it a 4. vegetables were limp, overly marinated and too sweet, they get a 1. was hoping to get a good serving of veggies with this one but i couldn't really finish them. not nearly as good as the first time i ordered this.
5 Stars
Loved the flavor and the taste. It seemed on the border of oily (lots of fresh flavor and oil from the salmon, and a lot from the sesame seeds), but I am definitely ordering again!
5 Stars
Best fish dish I have had. Nice size salmon with exciting flavor and texture. I am not a fan of bok choy, but veggies were yummy and not overcooked. Perfection! Ordered this twice in 2 weeks and will order again. Chef Levine is a culinary genius.
4 Stars
Sesame seared salmon was delicious, the salmon and veggies were cooked perfectly. The bok choy was soaked in oil. I would prefer that all items be cooked with less oil. The kimchi aioli was subtle and very good. Worth trying.
5 Stars
Another Steven winner! Loved the crunchiness of the sesame seeds on the salmon. Also enjoyed the kimchi aioli and the vegetables. Would definitely ordered again.
5 Stars
Really liked this - good sized portion, healthy and super flavorful. And, wheat- free!! Will definitely order it again.
4 Stars
Really tasty but I def didn't have any shitake mushrooms and only one carrot. Kind of sad to not have the mushrooms but still delicious. Would order again. It was a good piece of Salmon.
5 Stars
This was super good! The sesame crust on the fish was delicious. I'm not quite sure if the sauces were for something specific (i.e. one for the fish, one for the veggies) but both sauces were yummy too.
5 Stars
I've ordered this item every time on the menu. And every time, I am delighted!!
5 Stars
THIS WAS INCREDIBLE. Truly, I would stay in and eat this any day. Better than anything I've had in a restaurant in a long time. PLEASE KEEP THIS IN CONSTANT ROTATION. ....mouth is still watering thinking about it....
5 Stars
Chef Levine does it again - this is terrific! Lovely flavors, beautifully prepared fish. LOVED it. Will definitely order again.
3 Stars
The flavor was nice, but the salmon tasted too fishy for me. I am pretty sensative to this / picky though.
4 Stars
This was a nice meal. The salmon as done well and nicely flavorful. The veggies were pretty good.
2 Stars
Usually very good, but this time the fish was "fishy" and cooked well done, the veggies were limp and tired.
5 Stars
Finding no exciting vegetarian or vegan dishes on Munchery tonight, knowing what an amazing chef Steven Levine is, I decided to go for it! The veggies were firm & cooked to perfection. Salmon was fresh, interesting and wonderful. Loved every bite!
3 Stars
The shiitakes stole the show, meaty and flavorful. I loved the inclusion of the two sauces, particularly the subtle sesame oil in the vinaigrette. Salmon was a huge portion, and the sesame crust added good crunch and flavor.
4 Stars
Lots of nice flavors that came together well.
5 Stars
Wow! Tangy- cooked to perfection Salmon. Love the sesame! The vegetables are to die for and love the sauces. Thank god for Munchery!!!

Decent

Great item, we've order 3 or 4 times before.
5 Stars
Yummy and perfectly cooked
5 Stars
Delicious!
4 Stars
This was really quite good. The sesame seeds do not interfere with the taste of the salmon. Veg's pretty good.
5 Stars
Good as always
5 Stars
Great dish all around! Salmon was very moist. Vegetables were al dente and seasoned just right. Sauce was not necessary but does not overwhelm the fish once used.
5 Stars
So very yummy. Salmon cooked perfectly even after reheating.
5 Stars
Fantastic. Second time we've ordered this item. Just awesome
5 Stars
<contented sigh> Delicious, delicious, delicious -- I wouldn't change a single thing. After a wearying day of fighting a bad head cold while caring for a young infant, this meal singlehandedly restored my 'human' status. Thank you, Chef Levine.

Fishy.
1 Stars
Fish had a strong fishy flavor
5 Stars
Delicious!
5 Stars
Excellent. Tasted fresh and was filling. I definitely would order this again.
5 Stars
Steven Levine is my favorite. The sesame crust is delicious + crunchy, the salmon is perfectly cooked, sauces are fantastic, and for once almost enough veggies! I've ordered this 3 times already, and will continue to order whenever it's on the menu.
5 Stars
Flavorful and delicious. Beautiful piece of fish and good veggies.
5 Stars
Nicely cooked, very fresh fish as always. Love the sesame oil dressing. One of my Munchery favorites.
5 Stars
Amazing, absolutely perfect meal.
5 Stars
Nice salmon with texture and flavor. Aioli and Tamari were very flavorful and sided were tender and a healthy compliment to the salmon. Will definitely order again.
5 Stars
Definitely ordering again. The salmon came slightly undercooked so that 15 min in the oven brought it to perfect. The veggies were dominated by the mushrooms which were stronger that I expected. This was a lot of food, far too much for one person.
5 Stars
This was perfectly cooked...very tasty.
5 Stars
More than five stars! One of the best Munchery meals we've enjoyed. Wonderful amount and quality of veggies, delicious sesame coated salmon with two wonderful sauces that made the meal spectacular.
2 Stars
This had all the makings of a dish I would love, but it just didn't come together. Veggie portion was small and tamari sauce was very oily and salty but without much other flavor. Salmon tasted too fishy and not fresh, and was dry. Aioli was great.
5 Stars
Loved, loved, loved this salmon!!! The sesame crust was on point, the salmon itself was deliciously moist and the veggies paired with it were tasty! Let's just say my container was CLEAN when I was done!!!
5 Stars
Wonderful meal. The salmon was a nice big portion, and it was super delicious with the sesame seeds. There was a good mix of veggies, and both sauces were tasty. I'm not strictly low carb, but that was a bonus. All around fantastic!
5 Stars
Excellent. Perfectly cooked pink very fresh salmon. If you like your salmon cooked more, just reheat longer.
5 Stars
Delicious salmon, vegetables, and aioli—the tamari tasted a bit redundant, so I didn't use it.
4 Stars
Huge piece of well-cooked (rare) Salmon, but underwhelming portion of veggies... The sesame searing gave the salmon a good texture and the sauces (kimchi ailoli, and tamari vinaigrette) were excellent. I would get this again!
5 Stars
This was SO good - the salmon was cooked perfectly as were the vegetables. This is probably my favorite dish so far! Yum!
5 Stars
This was yummy! Perfectly cooked, and I like the two sauce options. Thanks!
5 Stars
Chef Steven does it aqain! This dish did not even need the aioli and tamari, but they were a nice flavor bonus. The salmon was moist and flaky and tasted wonderfully fresh. The carrots were perfect. Big hit!
5 Stars
Fantastic!
