Fish is such a great weeknight option since it goes together so quickly. It also fits into our attempt to eat more... well...Fish.
I find that salmon needs STRONG flavors. It always tastes better to me when paired with big flavors, something like chilies.
This is a simple Ellie Krieger recipe. I really loved it and will definitely be making it again soon!
