I have some salmon from Anderson Seafoods that is just begging to be cooked up sooner than later 🙂

Since my S.O. doesn’t eat veggies, I’ve been trying to make sure we supplement with things like fish. Salmon is a good fish for us. I’ll definitely give this one a whirl. My S.O. definitely doesn’t like catfish. So far, we’ve only mastered salmon, unless you count fishsticks, LOL!
My kids won’t do salmon, but my hubby and I love it! Be sure to let me know if you try this one 🙂
