I must confess that, in my family, salmon is one of our favorite fish. We eat salmon once or twice a week. Salmon is an accessible and healthy fish.


It´s rich in omega 3 fatty acids which helps to reduce cholesterol, chances of heart attack, the risk of cancer, improved cognition, bone and joint protection, healthy skin, better vision, and efficient metabolism. Salmon is also known to be a brain food for children and a calming food for those with ADHD.

If you don´t know there is two types of salmon: wild salmon and farm-raised salmon. I prefer to buy wild caught salmon if it´s available. If you can´t find fresh wild salmon in your fishmonger, see if in your supermarket there is frozen wild salmon. 

This salmon with lemon and lime butter sauce recipe is one of my favorites salmon dishes, whenever I want a quick, simple and easy meal for dinner. And it´s also a great dinner for those days when you are coming home from work.

The lemon and lime juice gives the salmon an extra flavor and it is made with only 4 ingredients (lime, lemon, butter, and garlic). The most amazing is that this sauce is ready in 5 minutes. The flavors are outstanding because I loaded the salmon with lemon and lime juices. Once you try you will want to add it to other fishes recipes.
