Salmon With Green Sauce

salmongreensauce1
Salmone in Salsa Verde ~ This recipe is as pretty as it is delicious. A tangy green sauce is drizzled over tender roasted pink salmon steaks to create a dish perfect for entertaining. Be careful not to overcook your salmon as it should flake with a fork when done, but the center should remain moist and pink. This is one of those great, easy recipes that you can throw together in minutes, yet it is elegant enough to serve to guests when entertaining.

Buon Appetito!
