I love this recipe because it’s simple and easy to prepare, and is a great way to get grilled flavor without grilling. A perfect pick for winter suppers or for rainy days when you can’t fire up the grill. Salmon is full of heart-healthy Omega-3 fats, and a single serving is an excellent source of Vitamin B12 and Vitamin B6. This salmon recipe is perfected when served with a side of veggies, whole-grains, or with a salad loaded up with fresh greens. You can add thinly sliced red onion, and sliced fruit such as blueberries, mandarin oranges, and strawberries.
