Why not swap heavy meat for seafood and see how seafood transforms traditional dishes, including this Salmon Marsala Recipe.
I’ve always had a love affair with salmon. But when I got pregnant with my first son, I couldn’t stand the smell.
Even a couple of years later, just the thought of my beloved salmon was enough to make me feel queasy.
But I figured, if salmon and I were ever to be on friendly terms again, it was up to me to make the first move.
I began making just the basic broiled salmon at home.
And before I knew it, we had made up. (Thank goodness!)
Salmon is by far my favorite fish. Well, that and raw tuna when I order sushi.
So I’m sharing this salmon marsala recipes as a kind of amends with my old friend the salmon.
