Try this delicious salmon recipe for dinner this week. It can be prepared in less than 15 minutes and packed with omega-3s and vitamin D. The salmon is seasoned with just salt and pepper so as not to overpower the flavor of the fish. The fish cooks for about 6 minutes, and you'll want to be certain not to overcook it since that can dry out the fish. The Herbed Caper Sauce can easily be scaled up or down to use on other recipes. It is equally delicious on grilled shrimp or steak. Serve this dish with herbed rice and asparagus.
