Salmon sone of my all time favorite sources of protein. I love it hot, I love it cold and sometimes I run out of ideas as to how to cook it. This slow roasted version uses a slow oil poaching method that locks in moisture and a bright citrus flavor. this salmon is perfect for lunch or dinner and is delicious cold served on salad or sandwiches.
