Garlic Lime Salmon


Ok, so most of us know that Salmon is a healthy meal option. High in Omega 3 and packed with vitamins and minerals, it is definitely something to add to your dinner rotation! Until recently, I hadn't had much experience preparing it at home. For some reason, I was a bit scared to even try. Well, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and go for it. What's the worst that could happen, right? I call for a pizza, lol, still fine in my book! But, thankfully my whole family really loved this! My 6 year old even gave me two thumbs up on this dish! Since it got such high scores my family, I though it was "safe" to share with y'all.
 
This is actually really easy! And it only took about 30 minutes, which isn't bad at all for a nice meal like this. So, give it a try and hopefully your family will like it as much as mine did! I paired this Salmon with steamed asparagus. I thought it went really well together, but feel free to pair it with anything you'd like.
