Let's pretend you could only choose one supper for the rest of the summer....what would you choose? I'm thinking this might be my vote after trying this recipe this week. Grilled salmon with avocado salsa, fresh sweet corn and watermelon. Yum. Yum. Yum. Yum. We can all thank Pinterest for this recipe....I trotted over HERE for the full scoop.
Now to begin, I know there are a lot of folks who don't like fish. Bleck, they say. My husband is a meat guy. Fish...well....take it or leave it. He'll eat it if I make it, but let's just say he doesn't REQUEST it. After taking one bite of this salmon he said, and I quote, "OMG, this is KILLER!!" To translate, he thought it was delightful....and proceeded to eat two servings. It was fresh, it was flavorful....it was awesome.
Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!!
