I’ve always been a seafood fan, and I specially love a good piece of fresh salmon. I prefer to prepare simple meals during summer months when the kids are home, since running the oven and stove for long periods only makes the house hotter.

It does not need much cooking time and it can be prepared using the same basic method, while using a variety of different ingredients and flavors.
