Honey Drizzled Salmon

IMG_5224IMG_5220

A very simple recipe for quick and easy salmon that combines some of my boyfriend’s favorite seasonings. It’s quick to make and so easy to clean up! I was able to use a lot of the herbs fresh from my container garden which is so convenient! No running to the store to grab parsley and other herbs 🙂 Now, if I could only grow lemons in the midwest and if he could only fish salmon out of our lake we would be all set 🙂 I included before and after photos on this dish so you could see the difference in color, and as always, want to remind you to use a thermometer to make sure it is cooked to the proper temp! Once I tried the flake test to only get my fish raw in the center 🙁 We decided to serve this with sweet potatoes and to wash it down, a refreshing Mountain Dew Margarita! The recipe for that is under cocktails. Cheers and I hope you enjoy it and would love to hear any of your variations also!
