Salmon Marsala Recipe - A fun fish recipe twist on a classic dish!

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.
