Healthy and Light Salmon in Under 30 Minutes: Salmon with Orange Salsa


I’m always looking for new recipes and ideas on how to prepare salmon since we eat it so often. I have been beyond incredibly busy lately with work, kids and more work. I love this recipe because it’s so easy and fresh and can be prepared in under 30 minutes. Plus, it’s really light and healthy. I made this recipe for NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama” that will air this month, and it is one of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter’s wonderful recipes that I tweaked (just slightly) for TV.
