I love food and I love to cook, but I too have those frustrating, head-scratching—what should I make for dinner—days that I'm sure everyone can relate to. My surefire remedy is to make something fast, simple and easy to clean-up. I also try to use the highest quality ingredients I can find to ensure maximum impact with minimal effort.
Fresh and flaky wild-caught salmon is perfect for such a day. Not only is it full of flavor, this wonder fish also has the added benefit of being a super food. Add a spicy sriracha and lime sauce and you'll have a no-fuss dinner that is delicious, nutritious and ready to enjoy in no-time. Pair this dish with steamed rice and a simple sauté of your favorite vegetables, and your family will never guess your struggle over dinner that day.
Note: This recipe received my 5 and 7 year old nephew and niece's seal of approval. After helping me in the kitchen and taking on the ultra important job of taste tester, they tried a bite and enthusiastically responded, "this is delicious!"
