Sweet and Spicy Salmon

Here’s a little story…

When Randy and I first met, this is the dish I made for him on our first casual date.  They say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!😂

Later he told me he was really skeptical of this dish because he was afraid it would be too fishy.

Well, almost 3 years later and we still make this dish almost weekly.

So yes I am saying it’s a great date night dinner!!

There are minimal ingredients and it’s SO easy, yet it will WOW your guests.

You can literally be done in under 30 minutes.

So…. Let’s get to it!
