STORY BEHIND THE DISH
I love experimenting with salmon dishes & this is one easy & flavorful dish great for entertaining.
Feel free to add any spices to the fish rub & any ingredients to the salsa. In place of the orange you can use mango, blood orange, grapefruit, etc. You can also add diced tomatoes or cucumbers. This is a fun dish, be creative :)
