Favorite Citrus SalmonCourse: DinnerCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
We eat fish at least one a week. This recipe I have shared with many friends and everyone raves about it. I love that the fish slow roasts on a bed of mixed citrus, fennel and a jalapeno. The flavors are delicious and the fish is light. My daughter who doesn’t care for salmon loves it this way and also grilled. You can’t go wrong and really you choose the citrus you like and if you don’t want the jalapeno then don’t use it. I serve this with steamed green beans and basmati rice.
1 medium fennel bulb, sliced thin
1 blood orange, sliced thin
1-2 Meyer lemons, sliced thin
1 jalapeno, seeded, and sliced thin
4 fresh dill sprigs
Kosher salt/Fresh ground pepper
