Salmon is such a healthy and flavorful fish. I brush it with a simple mixture of olive oil, honey, garlic, and cilantro which gives the salmon a sweet and herbal flavor. Finish with a squeeze of lemon and serve with basmati rice and fresh asparagus and you have ha beautiful springtime meal.

  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt (Plus More For Seasoning)
