I was reluctant to share this recipe with you, it’s a meal that gets the ‘oooos’ and ‘ahhs’ but is really quick and requires little hands on effort. For that reason, I contemplated keeping it to impress my guests with at dinner parties…but that’s pretty self-indulgent, so I’m sharing with you…on one condition! You too must make this salmon delight for your guests! Although I said we don’t celebrate valentines day (mostly because we prefer to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays) I felt we still needed to share the love somehow. So over (and with) this delightful meal it was.
