Sriracha Lime Salmon

Sriracha Lime Salmon

On this blustery spring day in Colorado I’m all bundled up inside for a glorious, glorious snow day. I love waking up to a winterland of snow, especially when I know I don’t have to commute in it.

Today I’m sharing my favorite way to fix salmon. The recipe is one of Gwyneth Paltrow’s, and I use it all the time. The sriracha lends the perfect amount of heat, and the ever classic flavors of lime and cilantro are wonderful, as usual. I originally wasn’t sure about the maple syrup since mixing savory and sweet can be iffy for me, but it works well with the salmon.
