Recipe

I am always on the lookout for new salmon recipes since it is something I prepare on an almost weekly basis. So when I saw this recipe on The Iron You I was excited to try it. The simple flavors of ginger, chili, and lime juice is one of my favorite combinations and it's seems like the perfect pairing for salmon. In terms of the salmon, any type will work, but I usually prefer coho salmon since it is a bit lower in fat and calories. I usually ask them to remove the skin at the grocery store as well to make prep easier for me.
