I made this recipe last night for a light and healthy dinner. Salmon is so popular in the Northwest that it always seems to be my fish of choice when I want something healthy (especially for your skin with the Omega 3 fatty acids) and filling. I made it with some wild rice and a grape, blue cheese, almond salad. It's quick and easy too with cooking time only being about 30 minutes total (with side-dishes)! The 1 lb of salmon makes plenty for 4 portions, but my boyfriend and I did eat 3 servings between the two of us, so depending on how hungry you are keep that in mind (I cut one piece in 1/2 in my second set of pictures to show how big a serving would be). This recipe is sure to make you feel good and keep you from unbuttoning your top button after a meal (which happens way too often to me..ha)! Enjoy!
