Lemon-Lime Salmon with Veggie Saute Recipe

Lemon-Lime Salmon with Veggie Saute Recipe

A fresh squeeze of lemon juice brightens so many flavors - acid is one of the most important influencers in how a dish tastes. If one acid is good, two is stronger: Add lemon and lime juice when you bake salmon, cooking the supporting cast of vegetables separately until crisp-tender. —Brian Hill, West Hollywood, California

"This was very good, but needed more seasoning, especially in the vegetables. I guess I am not a fan of tarragon, I ended up using salt, pepper, and some lemon pepper to give the vegetables a better flavor."

"This turned out wonderful! The lemon-lime flavors on the fish just enhance the taste and the veggies are super good as well. Instead of the terragon, I used a great seasoned salt mix that I had and it was wonderful! Will definitely make again."
