I live in a part of the country where salmon is a market mainstay. Since it’s one of my favorite varieties of fish, I make sure to take full advantage of preparing it whenever I can. It’s definitely one of the most distinctively flavorful types of fish, and I’ve perfected making it in a wide variety of ways. Last night, I was inspired to give it a buttery-citrus kick with a hint of sweetness. This is a quick, after-work friendly recipe that had me saying yum just in time to fulfill my weekly Gossip Girl addiction.
