Lemon-Lime Salmon with Veggie Saute

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

    Really liked the salmon. The vegetables were ok, but noy my favorite combination.

    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.

    Delish! The lemon/lime combo is the perfect way to spice up salmon and still keep it fresh and light.
